Gene: Muc5ac (mucin 5AC, oligomeric mucus/gel-forming) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Muc5ac
Name: mucin 5AC, oligomeric mucus/gel-forming
CRRD ID: 62001
Description: Involved in several processes, including cellular response to epidermal growth factor stimulus; cellular response to lipid; and response to vitamin A. Localizes to extracellular space. Used to study chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; dry eye syndrome; gastric ulcer; and stomach disease. Biomarker of asthma; gastric ulcer; otitis media; pulmonary fibrosis; and rhinitis (multiple). Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in dry eye syndrome. Orthologous to human MUC5AC (mucin 5AC, oligomeric mucus/gel-forming); INTERACTS WITH (+)-alpha-tocopherol; (E)-roxithromycin; 1,8-cineole.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
