Gene: Ngb (neuroglobin) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ngb
Name: neuroglobin
Description: Predicted to have oxygen carrier activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of hydrogen peroxide-induced cell death; response to iron ion; and visual perception. Localizes to mitochondrion; neuron projection; and perikaryon. Used to study transient cerebral ischemia. Biomarker of Alzheimer's disease; encephalitis; retinal ischemia; and transient cerebral ischemia. Orthologous to human NGB (neuroglobin); INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; ammonium chloride; barium sulfate.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Glnh; globin h
