Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits growth factor binding activity and vascular endothelial growth factor-activated receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; circulatory system development; and positive regulation of vasculature development. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cell junction; endosome; and external side of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in artery disease (multiple); macular degeneration (multiple); pancreatic cancer; and urinary bladder cancer. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; cardiovascular system; central nervous system; extraembryonic component; and genitourinary system. Orthologous to human KDR (kinase insert domain receptor).
