Gene: Ucn (urocortin) Rattus norvegicus
Analyze
Symbol: Ucn
Name: urocortin
Description: Exhibits corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor 1 binding activity; corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor 2 binding activity; and histone deacetylase inhibitor activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of cell death; positive regulation of macromolecule metabolic process; and regulation of secretion. Localizes to the axon; dendrite; and perikaryon. Used to study thromboangiitis obliterans. Biomarker of asthma; colitis; and thromboangiitis obliterans. Orthologous to human UCN (urocortin); PARTICIPATES IN corticotropin-releasing hormone signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; ammonium chloride; astressin.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: PROVISIONAL
Also known as: corticotensin
