Gene: Tert (telomerase reverse transcriptase) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Tert
Name: telomerase reverse transcriptase
RGD ID: 70494
Description: Predicted to enable several functions, including nucleic acid binding activity; nucleotidyltransferase activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of apoptotic process; positive regulation of transdifferentiation; and positive regulation of vascular associated smooth muscle cell migration. Located in mitochondrion. Used to study chronic kidney disease and transient cerebral ischemia. Biomarker of hepatocellular carcinoma; pulmonary hypertension; and silicosis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including autosomal dominant dyskeratosis congenita 2; carcinoma (multiple); gastrointestinal stromal tumor; leukemia (multiple); and melanoma (multiple). Orthologous to human TERT (telomerase reverse transcriptase); PARTICIPATES IN hypoxia inducible factor pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
