Gene: Cerkl (ceramide kinase-like) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cerkl
Name: ceramide kinase-like
Description: Predicted to have sphingolipid binding activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of apoptotic process and sphingolipid biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the nuclear lumen; photoreceptor inner segment; and photoreceptor outer segment. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in retinitis pigmentosa and retinitis pigmentosa 26. Orthologous to human CERKL (ceramide kinase like); INTERACTS WITH vinclozolin; 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene (ortholog); 17beta-estradiol (ortholog).
Type: gene
RefSeq Status: MODEL
