Gene: BEND2 (BEN domain containing 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: BEND2
Name: BEN domain containing 2
Description: This gene encodes a protein which has two BEN domains in the C-terminus. These domains are found in proteins which participate in protein and DNA interactions which occur during chromatin restructuring or transcription. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: BEN domain-containing protein 2; CXorf20; MGC33653
