Gene: Avp (arginine vasopressin) Mus musculus
Symbol: Avp
Name: arginine vasopressin
Description: Predicted to have molecular function regulator; protein kinase activity; and vasopressin receptor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular cation homeostasis; mating; and negative regulation of apoptotic process. Predicted to localize to the dendrite; extracellular space; and secretory granule. Used to study neurohypophyseal diabetes insipidus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in diabetes insipidus and neurohypophyseal diabetes insipidus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; cardiovascular system; integumental system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human AVP (arginine vasopressin).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: AVP-NPII; pre-pro-arginine-vasopressin-neurophysin II; prepro-AVP-NP II; vasopressin-neurophysin 2-copeptin; Vp; Vsp
