Gene: Col6a2 (collagen, type VI, alpha 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Col6a2
Name: collagen, type VI, alpha 2
Description: Predicted to have collagen binding activity. Predicted to be involved in growth plate cartilage chondrocyte morphogenesis. Localizes to the extracellular matrix and sarcolemma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy. Is expressed in several structures, including gut; heart; nervous system; reproductive system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human COL6A2 (collagen type VI alpha 2 chain); PARTICIPATES IN syndecan signaling pathway; cell-extracellular matrix signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: Col6a-2; collagen alpha-2(VI) chain; MGC36205; procollagen, type VI, alpha 2
