  • FunctionReceptor for VEGFC. Has a tyrosine-protein kinase activity.
  • Tissue specificityPlacenta, lung, heart, and kidney, does not seem to be expressed in pancreas and brain.
  • Involvement in diseaseDefects in FLT4 are the cause of lymphedema hereditary type 1A (LMPH1A) [MIM:153100]; also known as Nonne-Milroy lymphedema or Milroy disease. Hereditary lymphedema is a chronic disabling condition which results in swelling of the extremities due to altered lymphatic flow. Patients with lymphedema suffer from recurrent local infections and physical impairment.
    Note=Defects in FLT4 are found in juvenile hemangioma. Juvenile hemangiomas are the most common tumors of infancy, occurring as many as 10% of all births. These benign vascular lesions enlarge rapidly during the first year of life by hyperplasia of endothelial cells and attendant pericytes, and then spontaneously involute over a period of years, leaving loose fibrofatty tissue.
  • Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the protein kinase superfamily. Tyr protein kinase family. CSF-1/PDGF receptor subfamily.
    Contains 7 Ig-like C2-type (immunoglobulin-like) domains.
    Contains 1 protein kinase domain.
