Gene: ACTA2 (actin alpha 2, smooth muscle) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ACTA2
Name: actin alpha 2, smooth muscle
RGD ID: 1348351
Description: Predicted to have protein kinase binding activity. Involved in glomerular mesangial cell development and response to virus. Localizes to cytoplasm and protein-containing complex. Implicated in Moyamoya disease and thoracic aortic aneurysm. Biomarker of lymphedema.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
