Gene Summary

Enables growth factor binding activity and vascular endothelial growth factor-activated receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including generation of neurons; positive regulation of endothelial cell proliferation; and positive regulation of intracellular signal transduction. Located in several cellular components, including neuron projection; neuronal cell body; and plasma membrane. Used to study adhesions of uterus; brain ischemia; cystitis; and myocardial infarction. Biomarker of several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); impotence; ovarian hyperstimulation syndrome; prostate disease (multiple); and retinopathy of prematurity. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); gastrointestinal system cancer (multiple); glioblastoma; macular degeneration (multiple); and pancreatic cancer (multiple). Orthologous to human KDR (kinase insert domain receptor). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
