Gene: Bsg (basigin) Mus musculus
Symbol: Bsg
Name: basigin
Description: Predicted to have cell-cell adhesion mediator activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including homophilic cell adhesion via plasma membrane adhesion molecules; neuron development; and positive regulation of interleukin-6 production. Localizes to acrosomal membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; nervous system; reproductive system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human BSG (basigin (Ok blood group)); PARTICIPATES IN syndecan signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
