Gene: Vegfb (vascular endothelial growth factor B) Mus musculus
Symbol: Vegfb
Name: vascular endothelial growth factor B
Description: Exhibits protein heterodimerization activity and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in cardiac muscle contraction; coronary vasculature development; and protein O-linked glycosylation. Localizes to the extracellular region. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in myocardial infarction and pulmonary hypertension. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; cardiovascular system; genitourinary system; and trunk. Orthologous to human VEGFB (vascular endothelial growth factor B); PARTICIPATES IN vascular endothelial growth factor signaling pathway; ceramide signaling pathway; mTOR signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3,4-methylenedioxymethamphetamine; 4-hydroxyphenyl retinamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
