Background

FGF17 is a member of fibroblast growth factor family It is mainly located in the developing brain tissue. This protein is expressed during embryogenesis and in the adult cerebellum and cortex. FGF17 is an irreplaceable cytokine and has a variety of biological functions. It plays an important regulatory role, and has important biological significance for the formation and development of embryonic nervous system, bone and blood vessels.  As a potential carcinogenic factor, FGF17 is involved in the occurrence, development and metastasis of various cancers. It provides clues for studying the pathogenesis and treatment of cancer, such as the treatment of breast cancer and leukemia.

Member of the FGF family possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities, and are involved in a variety of biological processes including embryonic development cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion.  FGF17 carries out cell signal transduction by binding to FGF receptor.
