Gene: Atxn2 (ataxin 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Atxn2
Name: ataxin 2
Description: Predicted to have epidermal growth factor receptor binding activity and protein C-terminus binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of growth; neuromuscular process; and neuron differentiation. Localizes to the perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Used to study spinocerebellar ataxia type 2. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in late onset Parkinson's disease and spinocerebellar ataxia type 2. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; liver; sensory organ; and spleen. Orthologous to human ATXN2 (ataxin 2); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane; 4-hydroxyphenyl retinamide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
