Gene: Apoa1 (apolipoprotein A1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Apoa1
Name: apolipoprotein A1
Description: Exhibits amyloid-beta binding activity; cholesterol transfer activity; and lipase inhibitor activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ regeneration; lipid transport; and peripheral nervous system axon regeneration. Localizes to several cellular components, including discoidal high-density lipoprotein particle; intermediate-density lipoprotein particle; and low-density lipoprotein particle. Used to study arteriosclerosis and hyperthyroidism. Biomarker of several diseases, including fatty liver disease (multiple); hypertension; major depressive disorder; ocular hypertension; and sciatic neuropathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); familial hypercholesterolemia; familial visceral amyloidosis; non-alcoholic steatohepatitis; and systemic lupus erythematosus. Orthologous to human APOA1 (apolipoprotein A1); PARTICIPATES IN altered lipoprotein metabolic pathway; forkhead class A signaling pathway; lipoprotein metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-alpha-tocopherol; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 2,2,2-tetramine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
