Gene: Lama4 (laminin subunit alpha 4) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Lama4
Name: laminin subunit alpha 4
Description: Predicted to have signaling receptor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in blood vessel development; brown fat cell differentiation; and negative regulation of cold-induced thermogenesis. Predicted to localize to the basement membrane; neuromuscular junction; and synaptic cleft. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in dilated cardiomyopathy 1JJ. Orthologous to human LAMA4 (laminin subunit alpha 4); INTERACTS WITH 2-amino-2-deoxy-D-glucopyranose; acrylamide; aldehydo-D-glucosamine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: laminin subunit alpha-4; laminin, alpha 4; LOC309816; RGD1560062; similar to Laminin alpha-4 chain precursor
