Gene: Pcsk1 (proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pcsk1
Name: proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 1
Description: Exhibits chaperone binding activity, endopeptidase activity, and insulin binding activity; involved in several processes, including animal organ development, nervous system development, and protein processing; localizes to several cellular components, including the cytoplasm, extracellular space, and neuron projection; used to study hyperglycemia and type 2 diabetes mellitus; biomarker of glucose metabolism disease (multiple), hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism, islet cell tumor, and visual epilepsy; orthologous to human PCSK1 (proprotein convertase subtilisin/kexin type 1); PARTICIPATES IN altered energy homeostasis pathway; altered melanocortin system pathway; melanocortin system pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 1,3-dinitrobenzene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
