Human Gene AGER (uc011hdo.2) Description and Page Index
  Description: Homo sapiens advanced glycosylation end product-specific receptor (AGER), transcript variant 8, mRNA.
RefSeq Summary (NM_001206954): The advanced glycosylation end product (AGE) receptor encoded by this gene is a member of the immunoglobulin superfamily of cell surface receptors. It is a multiligand receptor, and besides AGE, interacts with other molecules implicated in homeostasis, development, and inflammation, and certain diseases, such as diabetes and Alzheimer's disease. Many alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms, as well as non-protein-coding variants, have been described for this gene (PMID:18089847). [provided by RefSeq, May 2011].
