Gene: Ece1 (endothelin converting enzyme 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ece1
Name: endothelin converting enzyme 1
Description: Exhibits protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of cardiac muscle hypertrophy; positive regulation of receptor recycling; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to the early endosome; external side of plasma membrane; and secretory granule. Used to study acute kidney failure; congestive heart failure; hyperhomocysteinemia; hypertension; and pulmonary hypertension. Biomarker of acute kidney failure; congestive heart failure; hypertension; nephrotic syndrome; and renal fibrosis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease; coronary artery disease; essential hypertension; and hypertension. Orthologous to human ECE1 (endothelin converting enzyme 1); PARTICIPATES IN endothelin signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (RS)-amphetamine; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: Ece; ECE-1; Endothelin-converting enzyme; endothelin-converting enzyme 1
