Gene: VWF (von Willebrand factor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: VWF
Name: von Willebrand factor
Description: Exhibits several functions, including chaperone binding activity; integrin binding activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in cell-substrate adhesion; platelet activation; and protein homooligomerization. Localizes to the Weibel-Palade body; collagen-containing extracellular matrix; and endoplasmic reticulum. Implicated in several diseases, including Behcet's disease; atrial fibrillation; end stage renal failure; essential thrombocythemia; and inherited blood coagulation disease (multiple). Biomarker of several diseases, including end stage renal failure; familial combined hyperlipidemia; obesity; systemic scleroderma; and von Willebrand's disease (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
