Gene: PDPN (podoplanin) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PDPN
Name: podoplanin
Description: Exhibits chaperone binding activity; chemokine binding activity; and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of extracellular matrix disassembly; positive regulation of platelet aggregation; and wound healing, spreading of cells. Localizes to several cellular components, including cell projection membrane; leading edge of lamellipodium; and tetraspanin-enriched microdomain. Biomarker of carcinoma (multiple); germ cell cancer (multiple); glioblastoma multiforme; and in situ carcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
