Gene: Ect2 (epithelial cell transforming 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ect2
Name: epithelial cell transforming 2
RGD ID: 1308524
Description: Predicted to have GTPase activator activity; Rac guanyl-nucleotide exchange factor activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including activation of GTPase activity; bicellular tight junction assembly; and regulation of cell cycle process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including bicellular tight junction; centralspindlin complex; and midbody. Orthologous to human ECT2 (epithelial cell transforming 2); INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: ect2 oncogene; epithelial cell transforming sequence 2 oncogene; LOC361921
