Description: CTGF is a mitogen that is secreted by vascular endothelial cells. It 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. Diseases associated with CTGF include Systemic Scleroderma, and Renal Fibrosis.
