Gene: Prl6a1 (prolactin family 6, subfamily a, member 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Prl6a1
Name: prolactin family 6, subfamily a, member 1
Description: Predicted to have hormone activity and prolactin receptor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including female pregnancy; positive regulation of lactation; and positive regulation of receptor signaling pathway via JAK-STAT. Predicted to localize to the extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in carotid artery disease. Orthologous to human PRL (prolactin).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Ghd13; growth hormone d13; placental prolactin-like protein B; PLP-B; Plpb; PRL-like protein B; Prlpb; prolactin-6A1; prolactin-like protein B
