Gene: Gpr179 (G protein-coupled receptor 179) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Gpr179
Name: G protein-coupled receptor 179
Description: Predicted to have G protein-coupled receptor activity. Predicted to be involved in protein localization to plasma membrane and visual perception. Predicted to localize to the dendrite terminus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital stationary night blindness 1E. Orthologous to human GPR179 (G protein-coupled receptor 179); INTERACTS WITH bisphenol A; aflatoxin B2 (ortholog); benzo[a]pyrene (ortholog).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: LOC287657; probable G-protein coupled receptor 179; RGD1560033; similar to GPR158-like 1
