Gene: Dscam (DS cell adhesion molecule) Mus musculus
Symbol: Dscam
Name: DS cell adhesion molecule
Description: Exhibits netrin receptor binding activity and protein tyrosine kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including generation of neurons; netrin-activated signaling pathway; and post-embryonic retina morphogenesis in camera-type eye. Localizes to several cellular components, including the dendrite; growth cone; and neuronal cell body. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; peripheral nervous system; sensory organ; skin; and testis. Orthologous to human DSCAM (DS cell adhesion molecule); PARTICIPATES IN forkhead class A signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH clobetasol; ethanol; N-ethyl-N-nitrosourea.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 4932410A21Rik; Down syndrome cell adhesion molecule; Down syndrome cell adhesion molecule homolog
