Gene: Apoe (apolipoprotein E) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Apoe
Name: apolipoprotein E
Description: Exhibits several functions, including amyloid-beta binding activity; hydroxyapatite binding activity; and phospholipid binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to alcohol; neurogenesis; and regulation of lipid metabolic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including discoidal high-density lipoprotein particle; low-density lipoprotein particle; and triglyceride-rich plasma lipoprotein particle. Colocalizes with early endosome and microtubule. Used to study artery disease (multiple); familial hyperlipidemia; fatty liver disease (multiple); glomerulosclerosis; and middle cerebral artery infarction. Biomarker of several diseases, including glomerulonephritis (multiple); hyperhomocysteinemia; hypertension; sciatic neuropathy; and transient cerebral ischemia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Alzheimer's disease (multiple); artery disease (multiple); cerebrovascular disease (multiple); eye disease (multiple); and familial hyperlipidemia (multiple). Orthologous to human APOE (apolipoprotein E); PARTICIPATES IN altered lipoprotein metabolic pathway; lipoprotein metabolic pathway; Alzheimer's disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; (25R)-cholest-5-ene-3beta,26-diol; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
