Gene: Nectin2 (nectin cell adhesion molecule 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Nectin2
Name: nectin cell adhesion molecule 2
RGD ID: 1309505
Description: Predicted to have cell adhesion molecule binding activity and protein homodimerization activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including coreceptor-mediated virion attachment to host cell; positive regulation of immune response; and spermatid development. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including cell surface; cell-cell contact zone; and zonula adherens. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis. Orthologous to human NECTIN2 (nectin cell adhesion molecule 2); PARTICIPATES IN E-cadherin signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,3-dinitrobenzene; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: LOC308417; MGC94554; nectin-2; poliovirus receptor related 2; poliovirus receptor-related 2; poliovirus receptor-related 2 (herpesvirus entry mediator B); poliovirus receptor-related protein 2; Pvrl2
