Gene: Meikin (meiotic kinetochore factor) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Meikin
Name: meiotic kinetochore factor
Description: Predicted to be involved in meiotic chromosome segregation. Predicted to localize to the condensed chromosome kinetochore and condensed nuclear chromosome, centromeric region. Orthologous to human MEIKIN (meiotic kinetochore factor); INTERACTS WITH bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: LOC497904; RGD1566120; similar to novel protein
