Gene: Gpx6 (glutathione peroxidase 6) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Gpx6
Name: glutathione peroxidase 6
Description: Predicted to have glutathione peroxidase activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular oxidant detoxification; oxidation-reduction process; and response to oxidative stress. Predicted to localize to the extracellular region. Orthologous to human GPX6 (glutathione peroxidase 6); PARTICIPATES IN arachidonic acid metabolic pathway; glutathione metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; alachlor.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: GPx-6; GSHPx-6; OBPII; odorant-metabolizing protein RY2D1; Ry2d1
