Gene: Col4a2 (collagen type IV alpha 2 chain) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Col4a2
Name: collagen type IV alpha 2 chain
RGD ID: 1308085
Description: Predicted to have extracellular matrix structural constituent. Involved in aging and response to activity. Predicted to localize to collagen type IV trimer and extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in atherosclerosis and porencephaly. Orthologous to human COL4A2 (collagen type IV alpha 2 chain); PARTICIPATES IN cell-extracellular matrix signaling pathway; Entamoebiasis pathway; small cell lung carcinoma pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: alpha-2 collagen type IV; collagen alpha-2(IV) chain; collagen, type IV, alpha 2; LOC306628; LOW QUALITY PROTEIN: collagen alpha-2(IV) chain; procollagen, type IV, alpha 2
