Gene: Cd44 (CD44 molecule (Indian blood group)) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cd44
Name: CD44 molecule (Indian blood group)
Description: Exhibits epidermal growth factor receptor binding activity; phosphoprotein binding activity; and protein kinase binding activity. Predicted to contribute to cytokine binding activity and cytokine receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including blood vessel maturation; macrophage fusion; and positive regulation of neutrophil apoptotic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including apical plasma membrane; basolateral plasma membrane; and nucleus. Biomarker of borna disease and cholestasis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in breast carcinoma (multiple); carcinoma (multiple); cholestasis; and prostate cancer. Orthologous to human CD44 (CD44 molecule (Indian blood group)); PARTICIPATES IN cell-extracellular matrix signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; (S)-colchicine; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate.
Type: protein-coding
