Gene: Sdc4 (syndecan 4) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Sdc4
Name: syndecan 4
RGD ID: 3650
Description: Enables fibronectin binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and protein kinase C binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of cellular component biogenesis; positive regulation of protein kinase activity; and ureteric bud development. Located in several cellular components, including costamere; focal adhesion; and membrane raft. Used to study bacterial infectious disease. Orthologous to human SDC4 (syndecan 4); PARTICIPATES IN syndecan signaling pathway; cell-extracellular matrix signaling pathway; malaria pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,3-dinitrobenzene; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: RATRYUDOCA; RYUDOCA; ryudocan core protein; Ryudocan/syndecan 4; SYND4; syndecan-4
