Gene: Pdgfb (platelet derived growth factor subunit B) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pdgfb
Name: platelet derived growth factor subunit B
RGD ID: 3283
Description: Exhibits signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of biosynthetic process; positive regulation of cell migration; and response to peptide hormone. Localizes to several cellular components, including basolateral plasma membrane; dendrite; and neuronal cell body. Used to study asthma; brain infarction; glomerulonephritis; and visual epilepsy. Biomarker of cholestasis; hypertension (multiple); liver cirrhosis; oligohydramnios; and ureteral obstruction. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in basal ganglia calcification; clear cell renal cell carcinoma; connective tissue cancer (multiple); familial meningioma; and prostatic hypertrophy. Orthologous to human PDGFB (platelet derived growth factor subunit B); PARTICIPATES IN platelet-derived growth factor signaling pathway; sphingosine 1-phosphate signaling pathway; glioma pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-dihydromyricetin; (S)-nicotine; 11-deoxycorticosterone.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
