FGF7

A gene on chromosome 15q21.2 that encodes fibroblast growth factor 7 of the FGF family, which bind heparin and have a broad range of cellular activities, including cell survival, division, differentiation and migration, embryonic development, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumour growth and invasion. FGF7 is a potent epithelial cell-specific growth factor, which is mitogenic for keratinocytes, but has little effect on fibroblasts; it is required for normal branching morphogenesis. FGF7 interacts with FGF2 receptor (FGFR2).
