Gene: Egr1 (early growth response 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Egr1
Name: early growth response 1
Description: Exhibits several functions, including DNA-binding transcription activator activity, RNA polymerase II-specific; RNA polymerase II core promoter sequence-specific DNA binding activity; and promoter-specific chromatin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to hormone stimulus; cellular response to organonitrogen compound; and regulation of synaptic plasticity. Localizes to cytoplasm and nucleus. Used to study myeloid neoplasm. Biomarker of several diseases, including liver cirrhosis; lung disease (multiple); middle cerebral artery infarction; pulmonary hypertension; and visual epilepsy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma and myeloid neoplasm. Orthologous to human EGR1 (early growth response 1); PARTICIPATES IN long term potentiation; prion disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; (R)-noradrenaline; (S)-amphetamine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: early growth response protein 1; EGR-1; Krox-24; Nerve growth factor-induced gene; nerve growth factor-induced protein A; Ngf1; Ngfi; NGFI-A; transcription factor Zif268; zif-268; zinc finger protein Krox-24
