Gene: Cerkl (ceramide kinase-like) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cerkl
Name: ceramide kinase-like
RGD ID: 1561057
Description: Predicted to have sphingolipid binding activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of apoptotic process and sphingolipid biosynthetic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including nuclear lumen; photoreceptor inner segment; and photoreceptor outer segment. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in retinitis pigmentosa and retinitis pigmentosa 26. Orthologous to human CERKL (ceramide kinase like); INTERACTS WITH vinclozolin; 1-chloro-2,4-dinitrobenzene (ortholog); 17beta-estradiol (ortholog).
Type: gene
RefSeq Status: MODEL
