Gene: Rpe (ribulose-5-phosphate-3-epimerase) Mus musculus
Symbol: Rpe
Name: ribulose-5-phosphate-3-epimerase
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including monosaccharide binding activity; protein homodimerization activity; and ribulose-phosphate 3-epimerase activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular carbohydrate metabolic process; pentose catabolic process; and pentose-phosphate shunt, non-oxidative branch. Predicted to localize to the cytosol and intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; integumental system; and nose. Orthologous to several human genes including RPE (ribulose-5-phosphate-3-epimerase); PARTICIPATES IN pentose phosphate pathway; pentose phosphate pathway - non-oxidative phase; ribose 5-phosphate isomerase deficiency pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane; 4-hydroxyphenyl retinamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
