Discoidin Domain Receptors
"Discoidin Domain Receptors" is a descriptor in the National Library of Medicine's controlled vocabulary thesaurus,
MeSH (Medical Subject Headings). Descriptors are arranged in a hierarchical structure,
which enables searching at various levels of specificity.
Receptor tyrosine kinases that bind COLLAGENS. They are characterized by the presence of extracellular DISCOIDIN DOMAINS that activate SIGNAL TRANSDUCTION PATHWAYS in response to collagen binding. They may also be cleaved by MATRIX METALLOPROTEINASES to mediate cell interactions with the EXTRACELLULAR MATRIX.
