Gene Summary

Enables growth factor activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including animal organ development; circulatory system development; and regulation of vasculature development. Predicted to be located in extracellular region and membrane. Predicted to be active in extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including cardiovascular system; mesoderm; nervous system; pleuroperitoneal region; and podocyte. Used to study proteinuria. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); autoimmune disease (multiple); gastrointestinal system cancer (multiple); hematologic cancer (multiple); and reproductive organ cancer (multiple). Orthologous to human VEGFA (vascular endothelial growth factor A). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
