Reverse strand gene: advanced glycosylation end-product specific receptor

Also known as: RAGE, SCARJ1, ENSG00000204305

Function: Mediates interactions of advanced glycosylation end products (AGE). These are nonenzymatically glycosylated proteins which accumulate in vascular tissue in aging and at an accelerated rate in diabetes. Acts as a mediator of both acute and chronic vascular inflammation in … Source: UniProt
