Gene: Dmd (dystrophin) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Dmd
Name: dystrophin
Description: Exhibits several functions, including PDZ domain binding activity; integrin binding activity; and lamin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including nervous system development; response to denervation involved in regulation of muscle adaptation; and response to water deprivation. Localizes to several cellular components, including mitochondrial membrane; neurofilament; and secretory vesicle. Used to study Duchenne muscular dystrophy; brain edema; and dilated cardiomyopathy. Biomarker of muscular atrophy; retinal degeneration; and status epilepticus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cognitive disorder; dilated cardiomyopathy (multiple); intellectual disability; and muscular dystrophy (multiple). Orthologous to human DMD (dystrophin); INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; 2,6-dinitrotoluene; 3,3',4,4',5-pentachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: apodystrophin-3; apodystrophin-I; DNADMD1; dystrophin transcript variant Dp71e; dystrophin, muscular dystrophy; dystrophin-related; RATDMD; RNDNADMD1
