Gene: Cd74 (CD74 molecule) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cd74
Name: CD74 molecule
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including amyloid-beta binding activity; macrophage migration inhibitory factor binding activity; and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in activation of MAPK activity and cell population proliferation. Predicted to colocalize with MHC class II protein complex. Orthologous to human CD74 (CD74 molecule); PARTICIPATES IN antigen processing and presentation pathway; tuberculosis pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: CD74 antigen (invariant polpypeptide of major histocompatibility class II antigen-associated); CD74 antigen (invariant polypeptide of major histocompatibility complex, class II antigen-associated); Cd74 molecule, major histocompatibility complex, class II invariant chain; H-2 class II histocompatibility antigen gamma chain; ia antigen-associated invariant chain; ii; INVG34; MHC class II-associated invariant chain
