Gene: Vcan (versican) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Vcan
Name: versican
CRRD ID: 619940
Description: Predicted to have protein phosphatase binding activity. Involved in axon regeneration. Localizes to cell surface and perineuronal net. Biomarker of myocardial infarction. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in intracranial aneurysm. Orthologous to human VCAN (versican); INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2-amino-2-deoxy-D-glucopyranose.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan 2; chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan 2 (versican); chondroitin sulfate proteoglycan core protein 2; Cspg2; GHAP; glial hyaluronate-binding protein; large fibroblast proteoglycan; PG-M; versican core protein
