Gene: Hbz (hemoglobin subunit zeta) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Hbz
Name: hemoglobin subunit zeta
Description: Predicted to contribute to haptoglobin binding activity and peroxidase activity; predicted to be involved in several processes, including erythrocyte maturation, hydrogen peroxide catabolic process, and negative regulation of transcription by RNA polymerase II; predicted to localize to the haptoglobin-hemoglobin complex and hemoglobin complex; orthologous to human HBZ (hemoglobin subunit zeta); INTERACTS WITH acrylamide; bisphenol A; Monobutylphthalate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Glne1; globin e1; hemoglobin, zeta; LOC287168; RGD1307486; similar to hemoglobin:SUBUNIT=zeta; zeta-globin
