Literature associating LYVE1 and congenital chylothorax
Lymphatic vessel endothelial hyaluronic acid receptor 1; Ligand-specific transporter trafficking between intracellular organelles (TGN) and the plasma membrane. Plays a role in autocrine regulation of cell growth mediated by growth regulators containing cell surface retention sequence binding (CRS). May act as a hyaluronan (HA) transporter, either mediating its uptake for catabolism within lymphatic endothelial cells themselves, or its transport into the lumen of afferent lymphatic vessels for subsequent re-uptake and degradation in lymph nodes.
Synonyms: LYVE1, LYVE1p, hLYVE1, B2R672, E7EPC7 ...
