Gene: Vegfa (vascular endothelial growth factor A) Mus musculus
Symbol: Vegfa
Name: vascular endothelial growth factor A
Description: Exhibits extracellular matrix binding activity; heparin binding activity; and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; generation of neurons; and tissue homeostasis. Localizes to the cytoplasm; extracellular space; and nucleus. Used to study DiGeorge syndrome; amyotrophic lateral sclerosis type 1; newborn respiratory distress syndrome; and psoriasis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Graves' disease; hematologic cancer (multiple); hypertension (multiple); reproductive organ cancer (multiple); and retinal disease (multiple). Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; egg cylinder; genitourinary system; and heart. Orthologous to human VEGFA (vascular endothelial growth factor A).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
