Name: chitinase 1
CRRD ID: 1305646
Description: Predicted to have chitin binding activity and endochitinase activity. Predicted to be involved in chitin catabolic process. Predicted to localize to extracellular space. Orthologous to human CHIT1 (chitinase 1); PARTICIPATES IN amino sugar metabolic pathway; french type sialuria pathway; sialic acid storage disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; acrylamide; atrazine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: chitinase 1 (chitotriosidase); chitotriosidase variant 1; chitotriosidase variant 2; chitotriosidase variant 3; chitotriosidase variant 4; chitotriosidase variant 5; chitotriosidase-1; LOC289032
