Gene: PDGFRA (platelet derived growth factor receptor alpha) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PDGFRA
Name: platelet derived growth factor receptor alpha
Description: Exhibits several functions, including growth factor binding activity; platelet-derived growth factor receptor binding activity; and transmembrane receptor protein tyrosine kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including platelet-derived growth factor receptor signaling pathway; positive regulation of phosphorylation; and protein phosphorylation. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cell junction; integral component of plasma membrane; and nucleoplasm. Implicated in hematologic cancer (multiple); hypereosinophilic syndrome; and pancreatic cancer. Biomarker of several diseases, including craniopharyngioma; infratentorial cancer (multiple); male reproductive organ cancer (multiple); renal cell carcinoma; and seminoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
