Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits platelet-derived growth factor receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; positive regulation of cold-induced thermogenesis; and transmembrane receptor protein tyrosine kinase signaling pathway. Localizes to the 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).
