Gene: Prnp (prion protein) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Prnp
Name: prion protein
RGD ID: 3410
Description: Enables several functions, including ATP-dependent protein binding activity; lamin binding activity; and transmembrane transporter binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of long-term synaptic potentiation; positive regulation of protein localization to plasma membrane; and response to copper ion. Located in postsynaptic density. Used to study hyperglycemia and scrapie. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease; Gerstmann-Straussler-Scheinker syndrome; Huntington's disease-like 1; fatal familial insomnia; and kuru. Orthologous to human PRNP (prion protein (Kanno blood group)); PARTICIPATES IN glypican signaling pathway; iron uptake pathway; prion disease pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: major prion protein; Prion protein structural; prion protein, PrP; Prion protein, structural; Prn; PrP
