Gene: Gdf5 (growth differentiation factor 5) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Gdf5
Name: growth differentiation factor 5
Description: Exhibits signaling receptor binding activity; involved in several processes, including negative regulation of neuron apoptotic process, ossification involved in bone remodeling, and positive regulation of neuron differentiation; predicted to localize to the extracellular space; biomarker of Parkinson's disease; orthologous to human GDF5 (growth differentiation factor 5); PARTICIPATES IN transforming growth factor-beta superfamily mediated signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; bisphenol A; C60 fullerene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: cartilage-derived morphogenetic protein 1; Cdmp1; growth/differentiation factor 5
