Gene: Rbp4 (retinol binding protein 4) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Rbp4
Name: retinol binding protein 4
RGD ID: 3546
Description: Exhibits retinol binding activity. Involved in response to ethanol and retinol transport. Localizes to extracellular space and protein-containing complex. Biomarker of obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human RBP4 (retinol binding protein 4); PARTICIPATES IN retinoic acid metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazinane; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: plasma retinol-binding protein; PRBP; RBP; RBPA; retinol binding protein 4, plasma; retinol-binding protein 4
