Gene: Pigr (polymeric immunoglobulin receptor) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Pigr
Name: polymeric immunoglobulin receptor
Description: Exhibits epidermal growth factor receptor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cell surface receptor signaling pathway; detection of chemical stimulus involved in sensory perception of bitter taste; and immunoglobulin transcytosis in epithelial cells mediated by polymeric immunoglobulin receptor. Localizes to recycling endosome membrane and transport vesicle. Orthologous to human PIGR (polymeric immunoglobulin receptor); PARTICIPATES IN interleukin-4 signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,4-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: pIgA-R; poly-Ig receptor; polymeric IgA receptor; RNPIGR2
