Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits identical protein binding activity and vascular endothelial growth factor-activated receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including angiogenesis; positive regulation of hematopoietic progenitor cell differentiation; and post-embryonic camera-type eye morphogenesis. Localizes to the extracellular space and nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Kuhnt-Junius degeneration; diabetic retinopathy; and pre-eclampsia. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; cardiovascular system; extraembryonic component; and genitourinary system. Orthologous to human FLT1 (fms related tyrosine kinase 1).
