FAMILY
  • heparin-binding growth factors family
  • FGF8 subfamily
  • CATEGORY signaling growth factor
    SUBCELLULAR LOCALIZATION extracellular
    basic FUNCTION
  • involved in the induction and patterning of the embryonic brain
  • FGF8, FGF17 and EMX2 play distinct roles in the molecular regionalization of frontal cortex subdivisions (
  • plays important roles in both the anatomical and functional development of the auditory midbrain
  • with FGF8, is a key factor in the patterning of the mid-hindbrain region with a complex picture of spatiotemporal gene expression during the various stages of cerebellar development
