AGGF1

(redirected from VG5Q)

AGGF1

A gene on chromosome 5q13.3 that encodes an FHA- and G patch domain-containing protein, which promotes angiogenesis and endothelial cell proliferation.

Molecular pathology
Defects in AGGF1 are a cause of Klippel-Trenaunay syndrome (OMIM:149000).

Some researchers have suggested that VG5Q (Vasculogenesis gene on 5q protein) has an association (7-11).
Recent studies establish VG5Q (angiogenic factor) as a susceptibility gene for KTW syndrome and show that increased angiogenesis is a molecular pathogenic mechanism of KTW syndrome [7].
