Gene: PEX2 (peroxisomal biogenesis factor 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: PEX2
Name: peroxisomal biogenesis factor 2
Description: Predicted to have metal ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including fatty acid metabolic process; negative regulation of cell population proliferation; and protein destabilization. Localizes to the Cdc73/Paf1 complex and integral component of peroxisomal membrane. Implicated in peroxisomal biogenesis disorder and peroxisome biogenesis disorder 5A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: 35 kDa peroxisomal membrane protein; PAF-1; PAF1; PBD5A; PBD5B; peroxisomal membrane protein 3, 35kDa; peroxisome assembly factor 1; peroxisome assembly factor-1; peroxisome biogenesis factor 2; PMP3; PMP35; PXMP3; RING finger protein 72; RNF72; ZWS3
