Gene: Col6a1 (collagen type VI alpha 1 chain) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Col6a1
Name: collagen type VI alpha 1 chain
Description: Predicted to have collagen binding activity; extracellular matrix structural constituent; and platelet-derived growth factor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular response to amino acid stimulus; endodermal cell differentiation; and extracellular matrix organization. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including extracellular matrix; extracellular space; and sarcolemma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy. Orthologous to human COL6A1 (collagen type VI alpha 1 chain); PARTICIPATES IN syndecan signaling pathway; cell-extracellular matrix signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 2,2,2-tetramine; 3-chloropropane-1,2-diol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: collagen alpha-1(VI) chain; collagen, type VI, alpha 1; LOC294337; procollagen, type VI, alpha 1; RGD1565398; similar to collagen alpha1 type VI-precursor
