Gene: Alb (albumin) Rattus norvegicus
Analyze
Symbol: Alb
Name: albumin
Description: Exhibits several functions, including enzyme binding activity; fatty acid binding activity; and zinc ion binding activity. Predicted to contribute to oxygen binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of circadian sleep/wake cycle, non-REM sleep; response to mercury ion; and response to platinum ion. Localizes to the basement membrane and extracellular space. Used to study familial hyperlipidemia. Biomarker of obstructive jaundice and protein-energy malnutrition. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including blood protein disease; hepatobiliary system cancer (multiple); hyperthyroxinemia; middle cerebral artery infarction; and psoriasis. Orthologous to human ALB (albumin); PARTICIPATES IN forkhead class A signaling pathway; organophosphate response pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-alpha-tocopherol; (+)-menthofuran; (R)-lipoic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: PROVISIONAL
Also known as: Alb1; Albza; serum albumin
