Gene: Apoa5 (apolipoprotein A5) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Apoa5
Name: apolipoprotein A5
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including anion binding activity; cholesterol binding activity; and enzyme activator activity. Involved in animal organ regeneration; lipid transport; and response to hormone. Localizes to extracellular space. Biomarker of hypothyroidism. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cerebral infarction; coronary artery disease; familial hyperlipidemia (multiple); and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human APOA5 (apolipoprotein A5); PARTICIPATES IN lipoprotein metabolic pathway; eicosanoid signaling pathway via peroxisome proliferator-activated receptor gamma; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; acetamide; acrylamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: apo-AV; apoA-V; apolipoprotein A-V; MGC108612; regeneration-associated protein 3
