Gene: Igf2r (insulin-like growth factor 2 receptor) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Igf2r
Name: insulin-like growth factor 2 receptor
RGD ID: 2871
Description: Exhibits several functions, including G-protein alpha-subunit binding activity; insulin-like growth factor II binding activity; and retinoic acid binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ regeneration; response to retinoic acid; and response to tetrachloromethane. Localizes to several cellular components, including clathrin coat; late endosome; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Colocalizes with trans-Golgi network. Used to study lung adenocarcinoma. Biomarker of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in diabetes mellitus (multiple); hepatocellular carcinoma; in situ carcinoma (multiple); and nephroblastoma. Orthologous to human IGF2R (insulin like growth factor 2 receptor); PARTICIPATES IN renin-angiotensin cascade pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: cation-independent mannose-6-phosphate receptor; IGF-IIR; Igfr2
