Gene: Mfge8 (milk fat globule-EGF factor 8 protein) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Mfge8
Name: milk fat globule-EGF factor 8 protein
Description: Predicted to have integrin binding activity, phosphatidylethanolamine binding activity, and phosphatidylserine binding activity; involved in positive regulation of cell population proliferation and response to estrogen; predicted to localize to the external side of plasma membrane, extracellular space, and extrinsic component of plasma membrane; orthologous to human MFGE8 (milk fat globule-EGF factor 8 protein); INTERACTS WITH (RS)-amphetamine; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,6-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
