Gene: PDGFA (platelet derived growth factor subunit A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PDGFA
Name: platelet derived growth factor subunit A
CRRD ID: 736070
Description: Exhibits several functions, including platelet-derived growth factor binding activity; protein dimerization activity; and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of intracellular signal transduction; regulation of cell migration; and regulation of phosphate metabolic process. Localizes to cell surface and extracellular space. Implicated in malignant glioma. Biomarker of Leydig cell tumor; breast cancer; leiomyoma; and prostate adenocarcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: PDGF A-chain; PDGF subunit A; PDGF-1; PDGF-A; PDGF1; platelet-derived growth factor A chain; platelet-derived growth factor A-chain; platelet-derived growth factor alpha chain; platelet-derived growth factor alpha isoform 2 preproprotein; platelet-derived growth factor alpha polypeptide; platelet-derived growth factor subunit A
