Gene: Apoc2 (apolipoprotein C-II) Mus musculus
Symbol: Apoc2
Name: apolipoprotein C-II
RGD ID: 10176
Description: Predicted to have enzyme regulator activity; lipid binding activity; and phospholipase binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including lipid transport; positive regulation of lipase activity; and regulation of lipid metabolic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including low-density lipoprotein particle; spherical high-density lipoprotein particle; and triglyceride-rich plasma lipoprotein particle. Is expressed in several structures, including capillary; central nervous system; liver; lung; and yolk sac endoderm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial apolipoprotein C-II deficiency; familial hyperlipidemia; and multiple sclerosis. Orthologous to human APOC2 (apolipoprotein C2); PARTICIPATES IN altered lipoprotein metabolic pathway; lipoprotein metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1-dichloroethene; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
