Gene: Dhfr (dihydrofolate reductase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Dhfr
Name: dihydrofolate reductase
RGD ID: 2500
Description: Enables NADP binding activity; dihydrofolate reductase activity; and dihydrofolic acid binding activity. Involved in axon regeneration; folic acid-containing compound metabolic process; and response to nicotine. Located in mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in acute lymphoblastic leukemia. Orthologous to several human genes including DHFR (dihydrofolate reductase); PARTICIPATES IN folate mediated one-carbon metabolic pathway; folate metabolic pathway; pyrimidine metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
