Gene: Cad (carbamoyl-phosphate synthetase 2, aspartate transcarbamylase, and dihydroorotase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cad
Name: carbamoyl-phosphate synthetase 2, aspartate transcarbamylase, and dihydroorotase
Description: Exhibits several functions, including aspartate carbamoyltransferase activity, carbamoyl-phosphate synthase (glutamine-hydrolyzing) activity, and dihydroorotase activity; involved in several processes, including animal organ development, carboxylic acid metabolic process, and nucleobase-containing small molecule metabolic process; localizes to several cellular components, including the cytosol, neuronal cell body, and protein-containing complex; used to study hepatocellular carcinoma; biomarker of hepatocellular carcinoma; orthologous to human CAD (carbamoyl-phosphate synthetase 2, aspartate transcarbamylase, and dihydroorotase); PARTICIPATES IN 2-hydroxyglutaric aciduria pathway; beta-ureidopropionase deficiency pathway; Canavan disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH (RS)-amphetamine; 2,4-dinitrotoluene; 2,6-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: INFERRED
Also known as: Cad_mapped; Carbamyl phosphatate synthetase; carbamyl phosphatate synthetase 2; carbamyl phosphatate synthetase 2 (mapped)
