Gene: Muc5ac (mucin 5, subtypes A and C, tracheobronchial/gastric) Mus musculus
Symbol: Muc5ac
Name: mucin 5, subtypes A and C, tracheobronchial/gastric
Description: Involved in maintenance of lens transparency. Localizes to extracellular space. Used to study dry eye syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in dry eye syndrome. Is expressed in nasal cavity epithelium; respiratory tract; stomach; and testis. Orthologous to human MUC5AC (mucin 5AC, oligomeric mucus/gel-forming); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; acrolein; carbon nanotube.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 2210005L13Rik; gastric mucin; MGM; mucin-5AC
