Gene: Stra6 (stimulated by retinoic acid 6) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Stra6
Name: stimulated by retinoic acid 6
Description: Predicted to have retinol transmembrane transporter activity; involved in response to retinoic acid; predicted to localize to the integral component of plasma membrane and protein-containing complex; orthologous to human STRA6 (stimulated by retinoic acid 6); PARTICIPATES IN retinoic acid metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 3,3',5,5'-tetrabromobisphenol A; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: LOC363071; MGC114408; receptor for retinol uptake STRA6; retinol-binding protein receptor STRA6; RGD1307551; similar to retinoic acid-responsive protein; stimulated by retinoic acid gene 6; stimulated by retinoic acid gene 6 homolog; stimulated by retinoic acid gene 6 homolog (mouse); stimulated by retinoic acid gene 6 protein homolog
