Fibroblast growth factor 10, in the human FGF10 gene encodes a protein. The proteins encoded by this gene is a fibroblast growth factor (FGF) family. Fibroblast growth factor family members with a wide range of mitosis and cell survival activities, and participate in a variety of biological processes, including embryonic development, cell growth, morphogenesis, tissue repair, tumor growth and invasion. Keratinized epidermal cells of this protein having pro-mitotic activity, but substantially no activity of fibroblasts, which is similar to the biological activity of FGF7. The mouse homologous research indicate that this gene in embryonic epidermal morphology, including the development of the brain, lung limb bud formation morphology, and begin. This gene is also implicated in wound healing is a major factor in the process
