Gene: Plec (plectin) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Plec
Name: plectin
Description: Exhibits ankyrin binding activity and protein N-terminus binding activity. Involved in epithelial cell differentiation; female pregnancy; and response to nutrient. Localizes to several cellular components, including apical plasma membrane; basal plasma membrane; and sarcolemma. Predicted to colocalize with intermediate filament. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2Q; epidermolysis bullosa simplex; epidermolysis bullosa simplex Ogna type; and epidermolysis bullosa simplex with muscular dystrophy. Orthologous to human PLEC (plectin); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,6-dinitrotoluene; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
