This gene encodes a member of the fibroblast growth factor receptor family. Members of this family are highly conserved proteins that differ from one another in their ligand affinities and tissue distribution. A representative protein consists of an extracellular region composed of three immunoglobulin-like domains a single hydrophobic membrane-spanning segment and a cytoplasmic tyrosine kinase domain. The extracellular portion of the protein interacts with fibroblast growth factors setting in motion a cascade of downstream signals ultimately influencing mitogenesis and differentiation. This family member binds acidic and basic fibroblast growth hormone and plays a role in bone development and maintenance. Mutations in this gene may be associated with craniosynostosis and multiple types of skeletal dysplasia. A pseudogene of this gene is located on chromosome 1. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq Apr 2011]
