Gene: VEGFB (vascular endothelial growth factor B) Homo sapiens
Symbol: VEGFB
Name: vascular endothelial growth factor B
Description: Exhibits chemoattractant activity and vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 1 binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of chemotaxis; positive regulation of signal transduction; and positive regulation of vascular wound healing. Localizes to the extracellular space. Implicated in myocardial infarction and pulmonary hypertension.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: VEGF-B; VEGF-related factor; VEGFL; VRF
