Gene: AGER (advanced glycosylation end-product specific receptor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: AGER
Name: advanced glycosylation end-product specific receptor
CRRD ID: 737312
Description: Exhibits several functions, including S100 protein binding activity; amyloid-beta binding activity; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including glial cell activation; modulation of chemical synaptic transmission; and positive regulation of intracellular signal transduction. Localizes to apical plasma membrane; cell junction; and fibrillar center. Implicated in several diseases, including autoimmune disease (multiple); cardiovascular system disease (multiple); cystic fibrosis; kidney failure (multiple); and lupus nephritis. Biomarker of several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); chronic kidney disease (multiple); congestive heart failure (multiple); diabetic retinopathy (multiple); and lung disease (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: advanced glycosylation end product-specific receptor; MGC22357; RAGE; RAGE isoform delta; RAGE isoform NtRAGE-delta; RAGE isoform sRAGE-delta; receptor for advanced glycation end-products variant 20; receptor for advanced glycosylation end products; receptor for advanced glycosylation end-products; SCARJ1
