Gene: Cga (glycoprotein hormones, alpha subunit) Mus musculus
Symbol: Cga
Name: glycoprotein hormones, alpha subunit
Description: Predicted to have follicle-stimulating hormone activity. Involved in several processes, including gonadotropin secretion; thyroid gland development; and thyroid hormone generation. Predicted to localize to extracellular space and follicle-stimulating hormone complex. Is expressed in brain; future pituitary; and retina nuclear layer. Orthologous to human CGA (glycoprotein hormones, alpha polypeptide); PARTICIPATES IN follicle-stimulating hormone signaling pathway; luteinizing hormone signaling pathway; autoimmune thyroiditis pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol; 17beta-estradiol 3-benzoate.
Type: protein-coding
