Gene: Cntfr (ciliary neurotrophic factor receptor) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cntfr
Name: ciliary neurotrophic factor receptor
CRRD ID: 1303100
Description: Exhibits ciliary neurotrophic factor receptor activity and cytokine binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including brainstem development; ciliary neurotrophic factor-mediated signaling pathway; and suckling behavior. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including CNTFR-CLCF1 complex; ciliary neurotrophic factor receptor complex; and external side of plasma membrane. Orthologous to human CNTFR (ciliary neurotrophic factor receptor); PARTICIPATES IN cytokine mediated signaling pathway; Jak-Stat signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17beta-estradiol; 3,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: ciliary neurotrophic factor receptor alpha; ciliary neurotrophic factor receptor subunit alpha; CNTF receptor subunit alpha; CNTFR alpha; CNTFR-alpha
