Gene: Gnaz (G protein subunit alpha z) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Gnaz
Name: G protein subunit alpha z
Description: Exhibits G protein-coupled serotonin receptor binding activity. Involved in adenylate cyclase-inhibiting G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway. Localizes to cytosol and plasma membrane. Orthologous to human GNAZ (G protein subunit alpha z); PARTICIPATES IN endothelin signaling pathway; Hedgehog signaling pathway; sphingosine 1-phosphate signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; ammonium chloride; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: g(x) alpha chain; guanine nucleotide binding protein (G protein), alpha z polypeptide; Guanine nucleotide binding protein alpha; guanine nucleotide binding protein, alpha z polypeptide; guanine nucleotide binding protein, alpha z subunit; guanine nucleotide-binding protein G(z) subunit alpha; GXA; gz-alpha
