Short name=FGF-21
Gene names
Name:Fgf21
OrganismMus musculus (Mouse) [Reference proteome]
Taxonomic identifier10090 [NCBI]
Taxonomic lineageEukaryotaMetazoaChordataCraniataVertebrataEuteleostomiMammaliaEutheriaEuarchontogliresGliresRodentiaSciurognathiMuroideaMuridaeMurinaeMusMus

Protein attributes

Sequence length210 AA.
Sequence statusComplete.

Protein existenceEvidence at transcript level

General annotation (Comments)

Function

Stimulates glucose uptake in differentiated adipocytes via the induction of glucose transporter SLC2A1/GLUT1 expression (but not SLC2A4/GLUT4 expression). Activity probably requires the presence of KLB. Ref.4

Subunit structure

Interacts (via C-terminus) with KLB; this interaction is direct. Interacts with FGFR4 By similarity.

Subcellular location

Secreted Potential.

Tissue specificity

Most abundantly expressed in the liver, also expressed in the thymus at lower levels. Ref.1

Sequence similarities

Belongs to the heparin-binding growth factors family.
