Entrez Gene Summary for PDGFRL Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein with significant sequence similarity to the ligand binding domain of platelet-derived growth factor receptor beta. Mutations in this gene, or deletion of a chromosomal segment containing this gene, are associated with sporadic hepatocellular carcinomas, colorectal cancers, and non-small cell lung cancers. This suggests this gene product may function as a tumor suppressor. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

  • Colorectal cancer (CRC) [MIM:114500]: A complex disease characterized by malignant lesions arising from the inner wall of the large intestine (the colon) and the rectum. Genetic alterations are often associated with progression from premalignant lesion (adenoma) to invasive adenocarcinoma. Risk factors for cancer of the colon and rectum include colon polyps, long-standing ulcerative colitis, and genetic family history. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:7898930}. Note=The gene represented in this entry is involved in disease pathogenesis.
  • Note=A polymorphism in PDGFRL has been reported to be associated with susceptibility to Behcet disease (PubMed:22926996). Behcet disease is a complex multiple-system disorder characterized by recurrent oral ulcerations, recurrent genital ulcerations, typical skin lesions, and uveitis. Behcet disease also involves joints, blood vessels, musculoskeletal, neurological systems, and the gastrointestinal tract. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:22926996}.
