Gene: Wrn (WRN RecQ like helicase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Wrn
Name: WRN RecQ like helicase
Description: Exhibits chromatin binding activity. Involved in brain development. Localizes to the neuron projection. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Werner syndrome; breast cancer; coronary artery disease (multiple); diffuse scleroderma; and senile cataract. Orthologous to human WRN (WRN RecQ like helicase); INTERACTS WITH cisplatin; endosulfan; ketamine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: LOC290805; RGD1564788; similar to Werner syndrome helicase homolog; Werner syndrome ATP-dependent helicase; Werner syndrome RecQ like helicase; Werner syndrome, RecQ helicase-like
