a receptor tyrosine kinase of the VEGFR family. Receptor for VEGF, VEGFB and PGF. The VEGF-kinase ligand/receptor signaling system plays a key role in vascular development and regulation of vascular permeability. Two splice variant isoforms have been described. Isoform SFlt1 may have an inhibitory role in angiogenesis. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
