  • Target

    • Function
      Receptor that binds both PDGFA and PDGFB and has a tyrosine-protein kinase activity.
    • Tissue specificity
      Expressed in primary and metastatic colon tumors and in normal colon tissue. Tumors may express a different isoform to that found in normal tissue.
    • Involvement in disease
      Note=A chromosomal aberration involving PDGFRA is found in some cases of hypereosinophilic syndrome. Interstitial chromosomal deletion del(4)(q12q12) causes the fusion of FIP1L1 and PDGFRA (FIP1L1-PDGFRA).
    • Sequence similarities
      Belongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Tyr protein kinase family. CSF-1/PDGF receptor subfamily.
      Contains 5 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
      Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
