Belongs to the thymidine/pyrimidine-nucleoside phosphorylase family.
Platelet-derived endothelial cell growth factor (PD-ECGF), which is alternatively designated thymidine phosphorylase or gliostatin, is an angiogenic inducer that potently stimulates the growth of endothelial cells and induces chemotaxis. Biologically active PD-ECGF is a functional dimer that consists of two single polypeptide chains that are expressed in platelets, placenta, foreskin fibroblasts and various squamous cell carcinomas, and they are slowly secreted from the cells. In addition, PD-ECGF is overexpressed in tumor and lesional psoriatic skin and lesional epidermis, indicating that it may play a role in the pathophysiology of psoriasis. Serine residues of PD-ECGF are frequently associated with nucleotide triphosphates, including ATP. In an ATP dependent manner, PD-ECGF is also able to catalyze the reversible phosphorolysis of thymidine to thymine, as it contains thymidine phosphorylase activities.
