Gene: Fst (follistatin) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Fst
Name: follistatin
CRRD ID: 2633
Description: Exhibits heparan sulfate proteoglycan binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including animal organ development; keratinocyte proliferation; and regulation of transmembrane receptor protein serine/threonine kinase signaling pathway. Predicted to localize to cytoplasm; extracellular space; and nucleus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in polycystic ovary syndrome. Orthologous to human FST (follistatin); PARTICIPATES IN Bone morphogenetic proteins signaling pathway; transforming growth factor-beta superfamily mediated signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: activin-binding protein; FOL1; follistatin-A; FS; Fst-288; LOC686745; RATFOL1; similar to follistatin
