Gene: Igfbp6 (insulin-like growth factor binding protein 6) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Igfbp6
Name: insulin-like growth factor binding protein 6
Description: Exhibits insulin-like growth factor I binding activity and insulin-like growth factor II binding activity. Predicted to be involved in regulation of insulin-like growth factor receptor signaling pathway. Localizes to Golgi apparatus and extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity. Orthologous to human IGFBP6 (insulin like growth factor binding protein 6); PARTICIPATES IN insulin-like growth factor signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: IBP-6; IGF-binding protein 6; IGF-BP6; IGFBP-6; insulin-like growth factor-binding protein 6; RBP6A; RBP6G
