General annotation (Comments)

Function

Plays an important role in the regulation of embryonic development, cell proliferation and cell differentiation. Required for normal branching morphogenesis. Growth factor active on keratinocytes. Possible major paracrine effector of normal epithelial cell proliferation. Ref.4 Ref.6

Subunit structure

Interacts with FGFBP1. Interacts with FGFR2. Affinity between fibroblast growth factors (FGFs) and their receptors is increased by heparan sulfate glycosaminoglycans that function as coreceptors. Ref.4 Ref.5 Ref.6

Subcellular location

Secreted.

Tissue specificity

Epithelial cell.

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the heparin-binding growth factors family.
