Plasma membrane-associated Neuropilin-1 (NRP1) binds vascular endothelial growth factor (VEGF) family members. NRP1 has three distinct extracellular domains, a1a2, b1b2, and c but lacks a distinct intracellular domain. VEGF165 mediates the formation of complexes containing VEGFR-2 and NRP-1, enhancing VEGF165-receptor binding on the endothelial cell membrane (Soker et al. 2002).
