Gene: Dscam (DS cell adhesion molecule) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Dscam
Name: DS cell adhesion molecule
CRRD ID: 619992
Description: Predicted to have cell-cell adhesion mediator activity; netrin receptor binding activity; and protein tyrosine kinase binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of axon extension involved in axon guidance. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including dendrite; growth cone; and neuronal cell body. Orthologous to human DSCAM (DS cell adhesion molecule); PARTICIPATES IN forkhead class A signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,2',5,5'-tetrachlorobiphenyl; acrylamide; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: Down syndrome cell adhesion molecule; Down syndrome cell adhesion molecule homolog; Down syndrome cell adhesion molecule-like; LOC100360483; LOC686040; similar to Down syndrome cell adhesion molecule
