Gene: PDGFB (platelet derived growth factor subunit B) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PDGFB
Name: platelet derived growth factor subunit B
CRRD ID: 737124
Description: Exhibits several functions, including molecular function regulator; platelet-derived growth factor binding activity; and protein dimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of cell migration; positive regulation of cell population proliferation; and positive regulation of cellular metabolic process. Localizes to cell surface. Implicated in basal ganglia calcification; clear cell renal cell carcinoma; connective tissue cancer (multiple); familial meningioma; and prostatic hypertrophy. Biomarker of several diseases, including COVID-19; Kuhnt-Junius degeneration; bone disease (multiple); diabetic retinopathy (multiple); and reproductive organ cancer (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
