Gene: Prmt8 (protein arginine methyltransferase 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Prmt8
Name: protein arginine methyltransferase 8
RGD ID: 1587677
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including S-adenosyl-L-methionine binding activity; protein homodimerization activity; and protein-arginine N-methyltransferase activity. Predicted to be involved in histone methylation; peptidyl-arginine methylation, to asymmetrical-dimethyl arginine; and protein homooligomerization. Predicted to localize to anchored component of the cytoplasmic side of the plasma membrane. Orthologous to human PRMT8 (protein arginine methyltransferase 8); INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
