Vaslkulärer endothelialer Wachstumshormonrezeptor 3

Das FLT4-Gen kodiert einen Tyrosin-Kinase-Rezeptor, der die endothelialen Wachstumsfaktoren C und D bindet. Mutationen werden beim autosomal dominanten hereditären Lymphödem Typ 1a und gelegentlich in den Tumorzellen von infantilen kapillären Hämangiomen gefunden.
