Fibroblast growth factor 22

FGF22, Fibroblast growth factor 22
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. FGF family members 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. The mouse homolog of this gene was found to be preferentially expressed in the inner root sheath of the hair follicle, which suggested a role in hair development.

Papers on FGF22
Distinct FGFs promote differentiation of excitatory and inhibitory synapses.

two members of the fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family, FGF22 and FGF7, promote the organization of excitatory and inhibitory presynaptic terminals, respectively, as target-derived presynaptic organizers
FGF22 and its close relatives are presynaptic organizing molecules in the mammalian brain.

FGF22 is expressed by cerebellar granule cells during the period when they receive synapses. Its receptor, FGFR2, is expressed by pontine neurons when they are making synapses on granule cells.
