Gene: Gc (vitamin D binding protein) Mus musculus
Symbol: Gc
Name: vitamin D binding protein
Description: Predicted to have actin binding activity and calcidiol binding activity. Involved in vitamin D metabolic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including axon; extracellular space; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is expressed in embryo; liver; and pancreas epithelium. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including autoimmune hypersensitivity disease (multiple); hepatocellular carcinoma; human immunodeficiency virus infectious disease; inflammatory bowel disease (multiple); and rheumatic fever. Orthologous to human GC (GC vitamin D binding protein); INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; arsenite(3-).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: DBP; gc-globulin; group specific component; group-specific component; VDB; vitamin D-binding protein
