Gene: Muc5b (mucin 5B, oligomeric mucus/gel-forming) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Muc5b
Name: mucin 5B, oligomeric mucus/gel-forming
Description: Predicted to be involved in defense response to bacterium and regulation of macrophage activation. Predicted to localize to extracellular space and intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Biomarker of nasopharynx carcinoma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in bronchiolitis; idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis; and urinary bladder cancer. Orthologous to human MUC5B (mucin 5B, oligomeric mucus/gel-forming); INTERACTS WITH C60 fullerene; decabromodiphenyl ether; vinclozolin.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: LOC309114; mucin-5B; RGD1561983; similar to Muc5b protein
