FGF5

FGF5 (Fibroblast Growth Factor 5): FGF5 is a member of the fibroblast growth factor family, a group of proteins known for their roles in cellular proliferation, differentiation, and signaling. As a key mediator of biological processes, FGF5 is involved in the regulation of hair growth cycles, and its activity has been linked to influencing hair length in various species. Beyond its role in hair follicle regulation, FGF5 contributes to the development and repair of tissues, including the nervous system, where it plays a role in neural development. Dysregulation of FGF5 has been implicated in certain pathological conditions, such as cancer, where its expression may influence tumor growth and progression. The multifaceted functions of FGF5, from hair growth modulation to tissue repair and cancer, highlight its significance in biology and medicine, offering potential targets for therapeutic intervention in disorders related to aberrant FGF signaling.
