Gene: Defb1 (defensin beta 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Defb1
Name: defensin beta 1
RGD ID: 619943
Description: Predicted to enable CCR6 chemokine receptor binding activity; double-stranded DNA binding activity; and identical protein binding activity. Involved in response to testosterone. Predicted to be located in membrane; microvesicle; and sperm midpiece. Predicted to be active in extracellular space. Biomarker of obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma; chronic obstructive pulmonary disease; and lung disease. Orthologous to human DEFB1 (defensin beta 1); INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17beta-estradiol; 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: BD-1; beta-defensin 1; CDK4; defensin, beta 1; rBD-1
