Gene: Serpinb7 (serpin family B member 7) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Serpinb7
Name: serpin family B member 7
Description: Predicted to have serine-type endopeptidase inhibitor activity. Involved in positive regulation of collagen biosynthetic process; positive regulation of cytokine production; and positive regulation of glomerular mesangial cell proliferation. Predicted to localize to the extracellular space. Biomarker of nephritis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in IgA glomerulonephritis and familial encephalopathy with neuroserpin inclusion bodies. Orthologous to human SERPINB7 (serpin family B member 7); INTERACTS WITH ammonium chloride; bisphenol A; cadmium dichloride.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: Megsin; serine (or cysteine) peptidase inhibitor, clade B, member 7; serine (or cysteine) proteinase inhibitor, clade B (ovalbumin), member 7; serine (or cysteine) proteinase inhibitor, clade B, member 7; serpin B7; serpin peptidase inhibitor, clade B (ovalbumin), member 7
