Summary
Predicted to enable signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in outflow tract septum morphogenesis. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including animal organ development; blood vessel morphogenesis; and embryonic morphogenesis. Predicted to be located in external side of plasma membrane. Predicted to be active in cytoplasm and extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; branchial arch; embryo ectoderm; embryo mesenchyme; and sensory organ. Used to study DiGeorge syndrome and tetralogy of Fallot. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 6 with or without anosmia and prostate carcinoma in situ. Orthologous to human FGF8 (fibroblast growth factor 8). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]

RefSeqs maintained independently of Annotated Genomes

These reference sequences exist independently of genome builds. Explain

These reference sequences are curated independently of the genome annotation cycle, so their versions may not match the RefSeq versions in the current genome build. Identify version mismatches by comparing the version of the RefSeq in this section to the one reported in Genomic regions, transcripts, and products above.
