VEGFC

Categories: 
Full Name: 
vascular endothelial growth factor C
Aliases: 
VRP,Flt4-L,LMPH1D
Gene Type: 
Protein-Coding

The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the platelet-derived growth factor/vascular endothelial growth factor (PDGF/VEGF) family. The encoded protein promotes angiogenesis and endothelial cell growth, and can also affect the permeability of blood vessels. The proprotein is further cleaved into a fully processed form that can bind and activate VEGFR-2 and VEGFR-3 receptors. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2014]
