Gene: Asip (agouti signaling protein) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Asip
Name: agouti signaling protein
RGD ID: 2003
Description: Predicted to enable neuropeptide hormone activity; type 3 melanocortin receptor binding activity; and type 4 melanocortin receptor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in melanin biosynthetic process; melanosome organization; and positive regulation of melanin biosynthetic process. Predicted to act upstream of or within several processes, including adult feeding behavior; epigenetic programming in the zygotic pronuclei; and melanosome transport. Predicted to be located in extracellular region. Predicted to be active in extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pigmentation disease and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human ASIP (agouti signaling protein); PARTICIPATES IN insulin responsive facilitative sugar transporter mediated glucose transport pathway; melanocortin system pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; ammonium chloride; atrazine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: A; agouti; agouti (coat color); agouti switch protein; agouti-signaling protein; ASP
