Gene: Wfs1 (wolframin ER transmembrane glycoprotein) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Wfs1
Name: wolframin ER transmembrane glycoprotein
RGD ID: 68954
Description: Enables several functions, including calcium-dependent protein binding activity; calmodulin binding activity; and proteasome binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of ATF6-mediated unfolded protein response; olfactory behavior; and protein stabilization. Is active in synaptic vesicle membrane. Used to study cataract; diabetes mellitus; and glucose intolerance. Biomarker of post-traumatic stress disorder and visual epilepsy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Wolfram syndrome (multiple); auditory system disease (multiple); cataract 41; diabetes mellitus (multiple); and optic atrophy (multiple). Orthologous to human WFS1 (wolframin ER transmembrane glycoprotein); PARTICIPATES IN Endoplasmic Reticulum-associated degradation pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; aconitine.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: Wolfram syndrome 1; Wolfram syndrome 1 (wolframin); Wolfram syndrome 1 homolog; Wolfram syndrome 1 homolog (human); wolframin
