Gene: Vip (vasoactive intestinal peptide) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Vip
Name: vasoactive intestinal peptide
Description: Exhibits hormone activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of smooth muscle cell proliferation; positive regulation of endothelial cell proliferation; and positive regulation of penile erection. Localizes to neuronal cell body. Used to study asthma; brain ischemia; periodontitis; pulmonary hypertension; and uveitis. Biomarker of visual epilepsy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pulmonary sarcoidosis. Orthologous to human VIP (vasoactive intestinal peptide); INTERACTS WITH (S)-colchicine; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 3',5'-cyclic AMP.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
