Gene: Mstn (myostatin) Rattus norvegicus
Analyze
Symbol: Mstn
Name: myostatin
RGD ID: 3115
Description: Predicted to enable cytokine activity; heparin binding activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of skeletal muscle tissue growth; response to testosterone; and skeletal muscle atrophy. Located in cytoplasm and extracellular space. Used to study amyotrophic lateral sclerosis. Biomarker of congestive heart failure; hypothyroidism; muscular atrophy; peripheral vascular disease; and uremia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in myostatin-related muscle hypertrophy. Orthologous to human MSTN (myostatin); INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol 3-benzoate; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; acrylamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: PROVISIONAL
Also known as: GDF-8; Gdf8; growth differentiation factor 8; growth/differentiation factor 8
