Gene: Muc16 (mucin 16, cell surface associated) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Muc16
Name: mucin 16, cell surface associated
Description: Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of epithelial cell proliferation; negative regulation of interleukin-6 biosynthetic process; and negative regulation of wound healing. Localizes to the extracellular space. Biomarker of ovarian carcinoma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in ovarian cancer. Orthologous to human MUC16 (mucin 16, cell surface associated); INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; atrazine; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: LOC315451; mucin 16; mucin-16; RGD1308422; similar to ovarian cancer related tumor marker CA125
