Gene: Vgf (VGF nerve growth factor inducible) Mus musculus
Symbol: Vgf
Name: VGF nerve growth factor inducible
CRRD ID: 69440
Description: Exhibits neuropeptide hormone activity. Involved in several processes, including glucose homeostasis; insulin secretion; and response to insulin. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including Golgi apparatus; neuronal cell body; and secretory granule membrane. Is expressed in brain. Orthologous to human VGF (VGF nerve growth factor inducible); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; benzo[a]pyrene; choline.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Gm1052; neurosecretory protein VGF
