Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits kinase activity and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; positive regulation of intracellular signal transduction; and vasculature development. Localizes to the cell surface and cytoplasm. Used to study basal ganglia calcification; infantile myofibromatosis; myeloproliferative neoplasm; and severe nonproliferative diabetic retinopathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in basal ganglia calcification; glioblastoma multiforme; infantile myofibromatosis; myeloproliferative neoplasm; and renal cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human PDGFRB (platelet derived growth factor receptor beta).
