FGF9 (Fibroblast growth factor 9) is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family of proteins. Human FGF9 is a protein of 208 amino acids with sequence similarity of approximately 30 percent to other members of the family of FGF. FGF9 is found in the conditioned medium of a Human glioma cell line and acts on cells of the central nervous system. It is a potent mitogen for glial cells.
FGF9 involved in several pathways and played different roles in them. We selected most pathways FGF9 participated on our site, such as MAPK signaling pathway, Ras signaling pathway, Rap signaling pathway, which may be useful for your reference. Also, other proteins which involved in the same pathway with FGF9 were listed below. Creative BioMart supplied nearly all the proteins listed, you can search them on our site.
FGF9 has several biochemical functions, for example, fibroblast growth factor receptor binding, growth factor activity, heparin binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by FGF9 itself. We selected most functions FGF9 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with FGF9. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
FGF9 has direct interactions with proteins and molecules. Those interactions were detected by several methods such as yeast two hybrid, co-IP, pull-down and so on. We selected proteins and molecules interacted with FGF9 here. Most of them are supplied by our site. Hope this information will be useful for your research of FGF9.
