Gene: Il6st (interleukin 6 signal transducer) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Il6st
Name: interleukin 6 signal transducer
Description: Predicted to contribute to cytokine binding activity, cytokine receptor activity, and interleukin-6 receptor binding activity; involved in several processes, including interleukin-6-mediated signaling pathway, negative regulation of cytosolic calcium ion concentration, and positive regulation of smooth muscle cell migration; localizes to the neuronal cell body membrane; biomarker of brain ischemia, hepatocellular carcinoma, status epilepticus, and visual epilepsy; orthologous to human IL6ST (interleukin 6 signal transducer); PARTICIPATES IN interleukin-6 signaling pathway; interleukin-27 signaling pathway; cytokine mediated signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-10-[(DIMETHYLAMINO)METHYL]-4-ETHYL-4,9-DIHYDROXY-1H-PYRANO[3',4':6,7]INOLIZINO[1,2-B]-QUINOLINE-3,14(4H,12H)-DIONE; 1-[(4-chlorophenyl)-phenylmethyl]-4-methylpiperazine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Ac1055; Gp130; IL-6 receptor subunit beta; IL-6R subunit beta; IL-6R-beta; IL-6RB; interleukin-6 receptor subunit beta; interleukin-6 signal transducer; membrane glycoprotein 130; oncostatin-M receptor subunit alpha
