Gene: PLAUR (plasminogen activator, urokinase receptor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PLAUR
Name: plasminogen activator, urokinase receptor
Description: Exhibits enzyme binding activity; protein domain specific binding activity; and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of epidermal growth factor receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of homotypic cell-cell adhesion; and regulation of apoptotic signaling pathway. Localizes to the cell surface and plasma membrane. Implicated in rheumatoid arthritis. Biomarker of several diseases, including Lyme disease; cardiovascular system disease (multiple); end stage renal failure; hepatitis B; and melioidosis.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: CD87; monocyte activation antigen Mo3; U-PAR; u-plasminogen activator receptor form 2; UPAR; URKR; urokinase plasminogen activator surface receptor; urokinase-type plasminogen activator (uPA) receptor
