Gene: Vps13a (vacuolar protein sorting 13 homolog A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Vps13a
Name: vacuolar protein sorting 13 homolog A
Description: Predicted to be involved in several processes, including flagellated sperm motility; lysosomal protein catabolic process; and sperm mitochondrion organization. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including bounding membrane of organelle; lipid droplet; and sperm midpiece. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in choreaacanthocytosis and choreatic disease. Orthologous to human VPS13A (vacuolar protein sorting 13 homolog A); INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,3,7,8-Tetrachlorodibenzofuran.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
