Gene: Gjb6 (gap junction protein, beta 6) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Gjb6
Name: gap junction protein, beta 6
RGD ID: 621830
Description: Predicted to enable cytoskeletal protein binding activity and gap junction channel activity involved in cell communication by electrical coupling. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to glucose stimulus; response to electrical stimulus; and response to lipopolysaccharide. Located in apical plasma membrane and gap junction. Biomarker of borna disease; status epilepticus; transient cerebral ischemia; ureteral obstruction; and visual epilepsy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Clouston syndrome; autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 3B; autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 1A; autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 1B; and ectodermal dysplasia. Orthologous to human GJB6 (gap junction protein beta 6); INTERACTS WITH 1,3-dinitrobenzene; 17beta-estradiol 3-benzoate; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: connexin f; Cx30; Cxnf; gap junction beta-6 protein; gap junction membrane channel protein beta 6; gap junction protein, beta 6 (connexin 30)
