Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits vascular endothelial growth factor-activated receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including lung alveolus development; regulation of blood vessel remodeling; and vasculature development. Predicted to localize to integral component of plasma membrane; nucleoplasm; and receptor complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; cardiovascular system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; and extraembryonic component. Used to study hereditary lymphedema. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hereditary lymphedema IA. Orthologous to human FLT4 (fms related receptor tyrosine kinase 4).
