Gene: KDR (kinase insert domain receptor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: KDR
Name: kinase insert domain receptor
RGD ID: 731018
Description: Exhibits several functions, including cell adhesion molecule binding activity; vascular endothelial growth factor binding activity; and vascular endothelial growth factor-activated receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including angiogenesis; positive regulation of endothelial cell migration; and protein phosphorylation. Localizes to several cellular components, including Golgi apparatus; endosome; and membrane raft. Implicated in artery disease (multiple); macular degeneration (multiple); pancreatic cancer; and urinary bladder cancer. Biomarker of several diseases, including breast cancer (multiple); eye disease (multiple); inflammatory bowel disease (multiple); nervous system benign neoplasm (multiple); and systemic scleroderma (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
