High impact information on Fgf13


Biological context of Fgf13

  • Like their highly conserved human counterparts, murine FGF-12 and FGF-13 are part of a distinct subfamily of FGF-like proteins characterized by a greater degree of amino acid sequence cross-homology and by conserved N-terminal domains which do not include secretion signal sequences [2].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Fgf13

  • To gain additional insight into the function of FGF-13, we evaluated its distribution using in situ hybridization and immunohistochemical staining [1].
