Theis gene encodes 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. This protein is a secreted endocrine factor that functions as a major metabolic regulator. The encoded protein stimulates the uptake of glucose in adipose tissue.

Immunogen:Recombinant fusion protein containing a sequence corresponding to amino acids 29-209 of human FGF21 (NP_061986.1).
