Gene: Pmel (premelanosome protein) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pmel
Name: premelanosome protein
Description: Predicted to have identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in melanin biosynthetic process; melanosome organization; and positive regulation of melanin biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the Golgi apparatus; cytoplasmic vesicle; and endoplasmic reticulum membrane. Orthologous to human PMEL (premelanosome protein); INTERACTS WITH acrylamide; bisphenol A; cadmium dichloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: LOC362818; melanocyte protein PMEL; melanocyte protein Pmel 17; Si; Silv; silver; silver homolog; silver homolog (mouse)
