Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Enables platelet-derived growth factor receptor binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of cold-induced thermogenesis. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including platelet-derived growth factor receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of fibroblast proliferation; and regulation of protein phosphorylation. Located in extracellular region. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human PDGFC (platelet derived growth factor C).
