midkine
Heparin-binding growth factor (13 kD) of the TGF- b ; superfamily; has 50% sequence identity with heparin-binding growth-associated molecule (HB-GAM). Structurally unrelated to fibroblast growth factor (FGF). Midkine was originally described as associated with tooth morphogenesis induced by epithelial-mesenchyme interactions. Nucleolin binds midkine.
