Gene: Tspo (translocator protein) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Tspo
Name: translocator protein
RGD ID: 2228
Description: Exhibits androgen binding activity and benzodiazepine receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including neurogenesis; positive regulation of cell death; and regulation of reactive oxygen species metabolic process. Localizes to mitochondrial outer membrane. Orthologous to human TSPO (translocator protein); PARTICIPATES IN heme biosynthetic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-hydroxymidazolam; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: benzodiazepin receptor; Benzodiazepin receptor (peripheral); benzodiazepine receptor, peripheral; Bzrp; MBR; mitochondrial benzodiazepine receptor; PBR; peripheral-type benzodiazepine receptor; PKBS; Ptbzr; PTBZR02; RATPTBZR02
