Gene: Fmr1 (fragile X mental retardation 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Fmr1
Name: fragile X mental retardation 1
Description: Exhibits several functions, including RNA binding activity, enzyme binding activity, and protein domain specific binding activity; involved in several processes, including cellular response to monosodium glutamate, negative regulation of transport, and regulation of gene expression; localizes to several cellular components, including the Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse, cytoplasm, and neuron projection; colocalizes with the microtubule; used to study autism spectrum disorder and fragile X syndrome; biomarker of childhood onset epileptic encephalopathy, transient cerebral ischemia, and withdrawal disorder; orthologous to human FMR1 (fragile X mental retardation 1); INTERACTS WITH (S)-3,5-dihydroxyphenylglycine; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,4-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: FMRP; fragile X mental retardation protein 1 homolog; fragile X mental retardation syndrome 1 homolog; fragile X mental retardation-1 protein; protein FMR-1; ragile X mental retardation protein; synaptic functional regulator FMR1
