  • Function
    Growth factor for endothelial cells. VEGF-B167 binds heparin and neuropilin-1 whereas the binding to neuropilin-1 of VEGF-B186 is regulated by proteolysis.
  • Tissue specificity
    Expressed in all tissues except liver. Highest levels found in heart, skeletal muscle and pancreas.
  • Sequence similarities
    Belongs to the PDGF/VEGF growth factor family.
  • Post-translational
    modifications
    VEGF-B186 is O-glycosylated.
  • Cellular localization
    Secreted. Secreted but remains associated to cells or to the extracellular matrix unless released by heparin.
  • Information by UniProt
