Gene: Gja5 (gap junction protein, alpha 5) Rattus norvegicus
Analyze
Symbol: Gja5
Name: gap junction protein, alpha 5
Description: Exhibits connexin binding activity, disordered domain specific binding activity, and gap junction channel activity; involved in several processes, including cell communication by chemical coupling, regulation of blood pressure, and regulation of blood vessel size; localizes to the cell projection and connexin complex; used to study hypertension; biomarker of artery disease (multiple), glomerulonephritis, obesity, and ureteral obstruction; orthologous to human GJA5 (gap junction protein alpha 5); PARTICIPATES IN connexin signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; all-trans-retinoic acid; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: PROVISIONAL
Also known as: connexin 40; connexin-40; Cx40; gap junction alpha-5 protein; gap junction membrane channel protein alpha 5; gap junction membrane channel protein alpha 5 (connexin 40)
