Gene: Epas1 (endothelial PAS domain protein 1) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Epas1
Name: endothelial PAS domain protein 1
Description: Exhibits DNA-binding transcription factor activity and cobalt ion binding activity. Contributes to sequence-specific DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including norepinephrine biosynthetic process; positive regulation of lung alveolus development; and regulation of cellular biosynthetic process. Localizes to cytoplasm and nucleus. Used to study acute kidney failure and intermittent claudication. Biomarker of artery disease (multiple); glucose metabolism disease (multiple); polycystic kidney disease; and renal cell carcinoma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial erythrocytosis 4; lung non-small cell carcinoma; polycythemia; and pulmonary hypertension. Orthologous to human EPAS1 (endothelial PAS domain protein 1); PARTICIPATES IN hypoxia inducible factor pathway; renal cell carcinoma pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 1H-benzimidazole; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: endothelial PAS domain-containing protein 1; EPAS-1; HIF-2 alpha; HIF-2-alpha; HIF2 alpha; HIF2-alpha; Hif2a; HLF; hypoxia inducible factor 2, alpha subunit; hypoxia inducible factor 2a; hypoxia-inducible factor 2 alpha; hypoxia-inducible factor 2-alpha
