Characterization of the biological properties of FGF-9

Abstract:

The fibroblast growth factor family of polypeptides currently consists of nine structurally-related members. Cloning of the mouse homologue of the latest reported member of the family, FGF-9, is described in this study.

Mouse Fgf9 exhibits a high level of sequence conservation with the human, rat and Xenopus counterparts. Of note is the lack of a hydrophobic signal peptide at the N-terminus of the coding sequence. The protein, however, appeared to be secreted by p...
