Gene: Ulk2 (unc-51 like kinase 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Ulk2
Name: unc-51 like kinase 2
RGD ID: 1320931
Description: Exhibits protein serine/threonine kinase activity. Involved in autophagy; generation of neurons; and response to starvation. Localizes to phagophore assembly site membrane. Is expressed in facial bone primordium; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ULK2 (unc-51 like autophagy activating kinase 2); PARTICIPATES IN autophagy pathway; mTOR signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dichloroethane; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
