HGNC name fms-related tyrosine kinase 1 (vascular endothelial growth factor/vascular permeability factor receptor)
HGNC id 3763
  • Flk1 disrupted transgenic mice
  • mdx:Flt-1(+/-) adult mice display a developmentally increased vascular density in skeletal muscle compared with the wild-type and mdx mice (mdx:utrophin(-/-):Flt-1(+/-) mice display improved muscle histology and significantly higher survival rates compared with the mdx:utrophin(-/-) mice, which show more severe muscle phenotypes than the mdx mice)
  • loss of normal foot process structure in mice lacking Flt1 results in massive protein leakage into the urine due to disruption of the glomerular permeability barrier, resulting eventually in kidney failure
