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 was isolated as a secreted factor thatexhibits a growth-stimulating effect on cultured glial cells. Innervous system, this protein is produced mainly by neurons and maybe important for glial cell development. Expression of the mousehomolog of this gene was found to be dependent on Sonic hedgehog(Shh) signaling. Mice lacking the homolog gene displayed amale-to-female sex reversal phenotype, which suggested a role intesticular embryogenesis.
