Gene: Rapsn (receptor-associated protein of the synapse) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Rapsn
Name: receptor-associated protein of the synapse
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits ionotropic glutamate receptor binding; protein membrane anchor; acetylcholine receptor binding (ortholog); INVOLVED IN positive regulation of neuromuscular synaptic transmission; regulation of postsynaptic membrane organization; skeletal muscle acetylcholine-gated channel clustering; PARTICIPATES IN acetylcholine signaling pathway via nicotinic acetylcholine receptor; ASSOCIATED WITH Autoimmune Diseases (ortholog); muscle tissue disease (ortholog); Muscular Diseases (ortholog); FOUND IN neuromuscular junction; centrosome (ortholog); cytosol (ortholog); INTERACTS WITH bisphenol A; cadmium dichloride; cyclophosphamide
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: 43 kDa receptor-associated protein of the synapse; LOC362161; rapsyn; receptor-associated protein of the synapse, 43 kDa
