Gene: Hspa8 (heat shock protein family A (Hsp70) member 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Hspa8
Name: heat shock protein family A (Hsp70) member 8
Description: Exhibits several functions, including A1 adenosine receptor binding activity; adenyl ribonucleotide binding activity; and clathrin-uncoating ATPase activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; protein transport; and protein-containing complex disassembly. Localizes to several cellular components, including dendrite; polymeric cytoskeletal fiber; and vacuole. Biomarker of Parkinson's disease; acute kidney failure; brain ischemia; disease of metabolism; and transient cerebral ischemia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Parkinson's disease and renal hypertension. Orthologous to human HSPA8 (heat shock protein family A (Hsp70) member 8); PARTICIPATES IN androgen signaling pathway; chaperone mediated autophagy pathway; clathrin-dependent synaptic vesicle endocytosis; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; (R)-adrenaline; 1,1,1-Trichloro-2-(o-chlorophenyl)-2-(p-chlorophenyl)ethane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
