Gene: Vim (vimentin) Mus musculus
Symbol: Vim
Name: vimentin
Description: Exhibits RNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including SMAD protein signal transduction; astrocyte differentiation; and cellular response to interferon-gamma. Localizes to several cellular components, including cell leading edge; intermediate filament; and phagocytic vesicle. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; heart; and sensory organ. Used to study cataract 30. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Behcet's disease; atherosclerosis; autoimmune hypersensitivity disease (multiple); cataract 30; and rheumatoid arthritis. Orthologous to human VIM (vimentin); PARTICIPATES IN cyclooxygenase mediated pathway of arachidonic acid metabolism; INTERACTS WITH 1,1-dichloroethene; 1,2-dichloroethane; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
