NUDT6 (nudix (nucleoside diphosphate linked moiety X)-type motif 6), also known as Antisense basic fibroblast growth factor or GFG-1, is a member of the Nudix hydrolase family of pyrophosphatases. Nudix hydrolases contain a characteristic Nudix domain and are responsible for catalyzing the hydrolysis of nucleoside diphosphate derivatives. The gene encoding NUDT6 is a FGF-2 gene antisense transcript, and NUDT6 is believed to regulate FGF-2 expression. FGF-2 is a mutifunctional heparin-binding growth factor important to angiogenesis, neuroectoderm development and wound healing. NUDT6 is expressed as two isoforms produced by alternative splicing.
