Gene: Bcan (brevican) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Bcan
Name: brevican
Description: Predicted to have calcium ion binding activity, carbohydrate binding activity, and hyaluronic acid binding activity; involved in regulation of neuronal synaptic plasticity; localizes to several cellular components, including the GABA-ergic synapse, anchored component of membrane, and dendrite; used to study malignant glioma; biomarker of malignant glioma and middle cerebral artery infarction; orthologous to human BCAN (brevican); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; acrylamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: ALPBRE; BEHAB; brain-enriched hyaluronan-binding protein; Brevican (brain specific proteoglycan in the aggrecan family); brevican core protein
