Gene: Porcn (porcupine O-acyltransferase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Porcn
Name: porcupine O-acyltransferase
Description: Predicted to have Wnt-protein binding activity and palmitoleoyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including canonical Wnt signaling pathway; protein palmitoleylation; and regulation of postsynaptic membrane neurotransmitter receptor levels. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the AMPA glutamate receptor complex; glutamatergic synapse; and integral component of endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in focal dermal hypoplasia. Orthologous to human PORCN (porcupine O-acyltransferase); PARTICIPATES IN Wnt signaling, canonical pathway; Wnt signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; bisphenol A; C60 fullerene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: LOC317368; porcupine homolog; porcupine homolog (Drosophila); protein-cysteine N-palmitoyltransferase porcupine; protein-serine O-palmitoleoyltransferase porcupine; RGD1564947; similar to porcupine-D
