Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have heparin binding activity; receptor ligand activity; and type 2 fibroblast growth factor receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including morphogenesis of an epithelium; positive regulation of epithelial cell proliferation; and regulation of branching involved in salivary gland morphogenesis by mesenchymal-epithelial signaling. Localizes to the Golgi apparatus and extracellular region. Orthologous to human FGF7 (fibroblast growth factor 7).
