Gene: Rbp4 (retinol binding protein 4, plasma) Mus musculus
Symbol: Rbp4
Name: retinol binding protein 4, plasma
Description: Exhibits retinol binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; detection of light stimulus involved in visual perception; and retinoid metabolic process. Localizes to the extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Is expressed in several structures, including adipose tissue; brain; genitourinary system; gut; and hindlimb. Orthologous to human RBP4 (retinol binding protein 4); PARTICIPATES IN retinoic acid metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol; 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: plasma retinol-binding protein; PRBP; RBP; Rbp-4; retinol binding protein 4, cellular; retinol-binding protein 4
