Gene: Jak2 (Janus kinase 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Jak2
Name: Janus kinase 2
Description: Exhibits several functions, including insulin receptor substrate binding activity, phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase binding activity, and signaling receptor binding activity; involved in several processes, including cell surface receptor signaling pathway, positive regulation of cellular metabolic process, and regulation of programmed cell death; localizes to several cellular components, including the cytosol, glutamatergic synapse, and nuclear matrix; used to study several diseases, including hyperuricemia, myocardial infarction, nonalcoholic fatty liver disease, primary biliary cirrhosis, and retinal detachment; biomarker of heart disease and obesity; orthologous to human JAK2 (Janus kinase 2); PARTICIPATES IN aldosterone signaling pathway; angiotensin II signaling pathway; angiotensin II signaling pathway via AT1 receptor; INTERACTS WITH (4-oxo-3-\{[5-(trifluoromethyl)-1,3-benzothiazol-2-yl]methyl\}-3,4-dihydrophthalazin-1-yl)acetic acid; (R)-mevalonic acid; (S)-nicotine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: JAK-2; Janus kinase 2 (a protein tyrosine kinase); tyrosine-protein kinase JAK2
