Gene: Pmel (premelanosome protein) Mus musculus
Symbol: Pmel
Name: premelanosome protein
RGD ID: 1316752
Description: Predicted to have identical protein binding activity. Involved in melanin biosynthetic process and positive regulation of melanin biosynthetic process. Localizes to melanosome. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; mesenchyme derived from neural crest; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human PMEL (premelanosome protein); INTERACTS WITH lead diacetate; trichloroethene; 3-isobutyl-1-methyl-7H-xanthine (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
