Phosphorylated KDR can be located in the nucleus of neoplastic cells.
KDR (kinase insert domain receptor) phosphorylation induces several effects which lead eventually to cell proliferation and survival. The precise mechanisms by which KDR, once it is activated, communicates with the nucleus are starting to be understood but have not yet been completely unravelled. Two in vitro studies on animal cell lines reported in the literature have demonstrated that, following stimulation with VEGF, KDR is actually translocated within the nucleus. Our aim was to investiga...Expand abstract
