Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Enables SH2 domain binding activity; fibroblast growth factor binding activity; and fibroblast growth factor receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including cementum mineralization; diphosphate metabolic process; and forebrain development. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including ear development; positive regulation of cell population proliferation; and regulation of animal organ morphogenesis. Located in plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Used to study Pfeiffer syndrome; atopic dermatitis; and otitis media. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Jackson-Weiss syndrome; bone disease (multiple); cleft lip; hematologic cancer (multiple); and hypogonadotropic hypogonadism (multiple). Orthologous to human FGFR1 (fibroblast growth factor receptor 1).
