Gene: Cntn2 (contactin 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Cntn2
Name: contactin 2
Description: Exhibits carbohydrate binding activity and protein self-association. Involved in several processes, including adult walking behavior; establishment of protein localization to juxtaparanode region of axon; and neurogenesis. Localizes to several cellular components, including main axon; myelin sheath; and neuronal cell body. Is expressed in eye; nervous system; and olfactory epithelium. Used to study T-cell adult acute lymphocytic leukemia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial adult myoclonic epilepsy 5. Orthologous to human CNTN2 (contactin 2).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: axonal glycoprotein TAG-1; axonin; axonin-1; contactin-2; D130012K04Rik; TAG-1; TAG1; Tax; TAX-1; transient axonal glycoprotein 1; transiently-expressed axonal glycoprotein
