Gene: Cd36 (CD36 molecule) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cd36
Name: CD36 molecule
RGD ID: 2301
Description: Exhibits several functions, including oleic acid binding activity; scavenger receptor activity; and thrombospondin receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including fatty acid metabolic process; positive regulation of transport; and response to peptide hormone. Localizes to several cellular components, including brush border membrane; caveola; and sarcolemma. Used to study interstitial lung disease (multiple); macular degeneration; myocardial infarction; obesity; and polycystic ovary syndrome. Biomarker of artery disease (multiple); hypertrophic cardiomyopathy; nephrosis; obesity; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including blood platelet disease (multiple); hemolytic-uremic syndrome; osteoarthritis; pemphigus; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human CD36 (CD36 molecule); PARTICIPATES IN retinol metabolic pathway; cell-extracellular matrix signaling pathway; eicosanoid signaling pathway via peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; INTERACTS WITH (+)-alpha-tocopherol; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: adipocyte membrane protein; CD36 antigen; CD36 antigen (collagen type I receptor, thrombospondin receptor); Cd36 antigen-like; CD36 molecule (thrombospondin receptor); collagen type I receptor thrombospondin receptor; Fat; fatty acid translocase; fatty acid transport protein; glycoprotein IIIb; GPIIIB; GPIV; LOC499984; MGC108510; MGC91634; PAS IV; PAS-4; platelet glycoprotein 4; platelet glycoprotein IV; RGD1562323; similar to fatty acid translocase/CD36
