Gene: Col6a1 (collagen type VI alpha 1 chain) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Col6a1
Name: collagen type VI alpha 1 chain
Description: Predicted to have extracellular matrix structural constituent and platelet-derived growth factor binding activity; predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular response to amino acid stimulus, endodermal cell differentiation, and extracellular matrix organization; predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the extracellular matrix, extracellular space, and protein-containing complex; used to study muscular disease; orthologous to human COL6A1 (collagen type VI alpha 1 chain); PARTICIPATES IN syndecan signaling pathway; cell-extracellular matrix signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-10-[(DIMETHYLAMINO)METHYL]-4-ETHYL-4,9-DIHYDROXY-1H-PYRANO[3',4':6,7]INOLIZINO[1,2-B]-QUINOLINE-3,14(4H,12H)-DIONE; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 2,2,2-tetramine.
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
