GENE - CHEMICAL INTERACTIONS REPORT

RGD ID: 1359360
Species: Rattus norvegicus
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: Mef2a
Name: myocyte enhancer factor 2a
Acc ID: CHEBI:7872
Term: oxytocin
Definition: A cyclic nonapeptide hormone with amino acid sequence CYIQNCPLG that also acts as a neurotransmitter in the brain; the principal uterine-contracting and milk-ejecting hormone of the posterior pituitary. Together with the neuropeptide vasopressin, it is believed to influence social cognition and behaviour.
Chemical ID: MESH:D010121
Note: Use of the qualifier "multiple interactions" designates that the annotated interaction is comprised of a complex set of reactions and/or regulatory events, possibly involving additional chemicals and/or gene products.
