The protein encoded by this gene is a member of thefibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members possessbroad mitogenic and cell survival activities, and are involved in avariety of biological processes, including embryonic development,cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth andinvasion. This protein is a potent epithelial cell-specific growthfactor, whose mitogenic activity is predominantly exhibited inkeratinocytes but not in fibroblasts and endothelial cells. Studiesof mouse and rat homologs of this gene implicated roles inmorphogenesis of epithelium, reepithelialization of wounds, hairdevelopment and early lung organogenesis.
