Gene: Chga (chromogranin A) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Chga
Name: chromogranin A
RGD ID: 2338
Description: Involved in several processes, including adenylate cyclase-activating adrenergic receptor signaling pathway involved in cardiac muscle relaxation; positive regulation of signal transduction; and regulation of blood circulation. Located in chromaffin granule; extracellular space; and neuronal dense core vesicle. Biomarker of hypertension. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in IgA glomerulonephritis; end stage renal disease; hypertension; and prostate cancer. Orthologous to human CHGA (chromogranin A); PARTICIPATES IN G protein mediated signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-nicotine; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: cgA; chromogranin A (parathyroid secretory protein 1); Chromogranin A parathyroid secretory protein 1; chromogranin A precursor; Chromogranin A, parathyroid secretory protein 1; chromogranin A-like; chromogranin-A; MGC105435
