Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have fibroblast growth factor receptor binding activity; growth factor activity; and receptor-receptor interaction. Involved in inner ear receptor cell differentiation; regulation of cardiac muscle cell proliferation; and regulation of neuron differentiation. Predicted to localize to the extracellular region. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in renal agenesis. Is expressed in several structures, including cranium; integumental system; limb; sensory organ; and tooth. Orthologous to human FGF20 (fibroblast growth factor 20).
