Summaries for FIGF Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for FIGF Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the platelet-derived growth factor/vascular endothelial growth factor (PDGF/VEGF) family and is active in angiogenesis, lymphangiogenesis, and endothelial cell growth. This secreted protein undergoes a complex proteolytic maturation, generating multiple processed forms which bind and activate VEGFR-2 and VEGFR-3 receptors. This protein is structurally and functionally similar to vascular endothelial growth factor C. Read-through transcription has been observed between this locus and the upstream PIR (GeneID 8544) locus. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2011]

GeneCards Summary for FIGF Gene

FIGF (C-Fos Induced Growth Factor (Vascular Endothelial Growth Factor D)) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with FIGF include kidney angiomyolipoma and glioblastoma multiforme. Among its related pathways are PI3K-Akt signaling pathway and RhoGDI Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include protein homodimerization activity and chemoattractant activity.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for FIGF Gene

  • Growth factor active in angiogenesis, lymphangiogenesis and endothelial cell growth, stimulating their proliferation and migration and also has effects on the permeability of blood vessels. May function in the formation of the venous and lymphatic vascular systems during embryogenesis, and also in the maintenance of differentiated lymphatic endothelium in adults. Binds and activates VEGFR-2 (KDR/FLK1) and VEGFR-3 (FLT4) receptors.

Post-translational modifications for FIGF Gene

  • Undergoes a complex proteolytic maturation which generates a variety of processed secreted forms with increased activity toward VEGFR-3 and VEGFR-2. VEGF-D first form an antiparallel homodimer linked by disulfide bonds before secretion. The fully processed VEGF-D is composed mostly of two VEGF homology domains (VHDs) bound by non-covalent interactions.
