Gene: Ereg (epiregulin) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ereg
Name: epiregulin
RGD ID: 620299
Description: Enables growth factor activity. Involved in several processes, including female gamete generation; luteinizing hormone signaling pathway; and positive regulation of mitotic nuclear division. Located in extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in extrapulmonary tuberculosis; pulmonary tuberculosis; and tuberculosis. Orthologous to human EREG (epiregulin); PARTICIPATES IN epidermal growth factor/neuregulin signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1,1-Trichloro-2-(o-chlorophenyl)-2-(p-chlorophenyl)ethane; 1,2,4-trimethylbenzene; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: epiregulin precursor; proepiregulin
