Gene: Azgp1 (alpha-2-glycoprotein 1, zinc) Mus musculus
Symbol: Azgp1
Name: alpha-2-glycoprotein 1, zinc
Description: Predicted to be involved in several processes, including antigen processing and presentation of endogenous peptide antigen via MHC class I via ER pathway, TAP-independent; detection of chemical stimulus involved in sensory perception of bitter taste; and positive regulation of T cell mediated cytotoxicity. Predicted to localize to external side of plasma membrane and extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; exocrine gland; genitourinary system; gut; and liver and biliary system. Orthologous to human AZGP1 (alpha-2-glycoprotein 1, zinc-binding); INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl; 2,2',5,5'-tetrachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: major histocompatibility complex class I-like protein; Zag; zinc-alpha-2-glycoprotein; zn-alpha-2-GP
