Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits chemoattractant activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; positive regulation of cell population proliferation; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to the extracellular space. Predicted to colocalize with the collagen-containing extracellular matrix. Used to study LADD syndrome and intestinal atresia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in LADD syndrome. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human FGF10 (fibroblast growth factor 10).
