CTGF, ID (CTGF, CCN2, HCS24, IGFBP8, Connective tissue growth factor, CCN family member 2, Hypertrophic chondrocyte-specific protein 24, Insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 8)
Description:
The protein encoded by this gene is a mitogen that is secreted by vascular endothelial cells. The encoded protein plays a role in chondrocyte proliferation and differentiation, cell adhesion in many cell types, and is related to platelet-derived growth factor. Certain polymorphisms in this gene have been linked with a higher incidence of systemic sclerosis. [provided by RefSeq].
