Gene: MORC2 (MORC family CW-type zinc finger 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: MORC2
Name: MORC family CW-type zinc finger 2
Description: Exhibits several functions, including ATP binding activity; metal ion binding activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including chromatin remodeling; negative regulation of single stranded viral RNA replication via double stranded DNA intermediate; and regulation of gene expression. Localizes to cytosol; heterochromatin; and nuclear lumen. Implicated in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease axonal type 2Z.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: ATPase MORC2; CMT2Z; MORC family CW-type zinc finger protein 2; ZCW3; ZCWCC1; zinc finger CW-type coiled-coil domain protein 1; zinc finger, CW type with coiled-coil domain 1; zinc finger, CW-type with coiled-coil domain 1
