RGD ID: 13991983
Species: Sus scrofa
RGD Object: Gene
Symbol: GCLC
Name: glutamate-cysteine ligase catalytic subunit
Acc ID: CHEBI:27584
Term: aldosterone
Definition: A pregnane-based steroidal hormone produced by the outer-section (zona glomerulosa) of the adrenal cortex in the adrenal gland, and acts on the distal tubules and collecting ducts of the kidney to cause the conservation of sodium, secretion of potassium, increased water retention, and increased blood pressure. The overall effect of aldosterone is to increase reabsorption of ions and water in the kidney.
Chemical ID: MESH:D000450
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.
