Gene: VCAM1 (vascular cell adhesion molecule 1) Homo sapiens
Symbol: VCAM1
Name: vascular cell adhesion molecule 1
RGD ID: 730988
Description: Exhibits integrin binding activity and primary amine oxidase activity. Involved in several processes, including calcium-mediated signaling using intracellular calcium source; cell-cell adhesion in response to extracellular stimulus; and cellular response to amyloid-beta. Localizes to several cellular components, including alpha9-beta1 integrin-vascular cell adhesion molecule-1 complex; early endosome; and podosome. Biomarker of several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); diabetes mellitus (multiple); essential thrombocythemia; glomerulonephritis (multiple); and interstitial cystitis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
