FGF23

Official Full Name
fibroblast growth factor 23
Background
This gene encodes a member of the fibroblast growth factor family of proteins, which possess broad mitogenic and cell survival activities and are involved in a variety of biological processes. The product of this gene regulates phosphate homeostasis and transport in the kidney. The full-length, functional protein may be deactivated via cleavage into N-terminal and C-terminal chains. Mutation of this cleavage site causes autosomal dominant hypophosphatemic rickets (ADHR). Mutations in this gene are also associated with hyperphosphatemic familial tumoral calcinosis (HFTC).

Synonyms
FGF23; fibroblast growth factor 23; ADHR; FGFN; HYPF; HPDR2; PHPTC; phosphatonin; tumor-derived hypophosphatemia inducing factor
