Gene: Pdgfa (platelet derived growth factor subunit A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pdgfa
Name: platelet derived growth factor subunit A
RGD ID: 3282
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including platelet-derived growth factor binding activity; protein dimerization activity; and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including male gonad development; response to estradiol; and response to retinoic acid. Predicted to localize to cell surface; extracellular space; and microvillus. Biomarker of chronic ulcer of skin; oligohydramnios; pancreatitis; pulmonary hypertension; and renovascular hypertension. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in malignant glioma. Orthologous to human PDGFA (platelet derived growth factor subunit A); PARTICIPATES IN ceramide signaling pathway; platelet-derived growth factor signaling pathway; cytokine mediated signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-nicotine; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 11-deoxycorticosterone.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: PDGF subunit A; PDGF-1; PDGFACP; platelet derived growth factor, alpha; Platelet-derived growth factor A chain; platelet-derived growth factor alpha polypeptide; platelet-derived growth factor subunit A
