Gene: Chit1 (chitinase 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Chit1
Name: chitinase 1
Description: Predicted to have chitin binding activity and endochitinase activity. Predicted to be involved in chitin catabolic process. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm and 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
