Gene: Megf8 (multiple EGF-like-domains 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Megf8
Name: multiple EGF-like-domains 8
Description: Predicted to have calcium ion binding activity; predicted to be involved in several processes, including animal organ development, embryonic morphogenesis, and generation of neurons; predicted to localize to the nucleus; orthologous to human MEGF8 (multiple EGF like domains 8); INTERACTS WITH ammonium chloride; beta-naphthoflavone; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
