KDR


Also found in: Acronyms.

KDR

A gene on chromosome 4q11-q12 that encodes a vascular endothelial growth factor receptor known as kinase insert domain receptor, which is a type-III receptor tyrosine kinase. KDR is the main mediator of VEGF-induced endothelial proliferation, survival, migration, tubular morphogenesis and sprouting.

Molecular pathology
KDR mutations have been linked to infantile capillary haemangiomas.

KDR is a knot measurement used for the evaluation of the effect of more than one knot in the same region of the piece, also called a cluster or combination knot (a type 10 knot per ASTM D 4761 [ASTM 2013a]).
This section describes the four metrics of performance used in this experiment, and those are the correlation coefficient, KGR, KDR, and randomness.
In the few M-form populations where it has been found, sequencing analysis of the upstream intron-1 of the kdr locus showed that the 1014F allele apparently occurred through introgression with the S-form (49).
KDR offers a varied fleet from the E K Kanoo and Motorcity agents; from two-door sports cars to family sedans and even commercial vehicles such as pick-ups, trucks and vans.
Phosphor-KDR rabbit mAb was from upstate (USA); AKT was from Epitomics; phospho-AKT rabbit mAb, p44/42 MAPK (ERK1 /2) and phospho-p44/42 MAPK (ERK1/2) rabbit mAb were from cell signaling (Cell Signaling Tech, USA), KDR was purchased from Protein technology Group (USA).
We first identified CD34+ cells, which were examined for the dual expression CD133 and KDR.
The research team showed that activation of KDR on these novel liver progenitors differentiates them into mature liver cells.
A critical discovery in this research was finding that the novel progenitor has a receptor protein on its cell surface called KDR, or vascular endothelial growth factor receptor 2, which until now, was thought to be restricted to endodiclial cells that form vessels, the progenitors for endodielial cells and the progenitors blood cells.
Commenting on the partnership, Vishesh Bhatia, CEO, Jumbo Electronics said, "We, as Jumbo group, welcome our partner Lenovo and are very excited to represent Lenovo Smartphones in the capacity of KDR (Key Domestic Retail) Distribution Partner.
Death of microvascular cells due to the toxic irritating cellular condition may be responsible for up regulation of VEGF and it's receptor KDR to increase circulation to the affected areas in an attempt to remove those irritating molecules.
Inspired by the work in [6], Muja and Lowe proposed a multiple randomized KD-tree (KDR) [7].
