Gene: MT2A (metallothionein 2A) Homo sapiens
Analyze
Symbol: MT2A
Name: metallothionein 2A
Description: Exhibits drug binding activity and zinc ion binding activity. Involved in cellular response to cytokine stimulus; cellular response to drug; and cellular response to zinc ion. Predicted to localize to the nucleus and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Implicated in carotid stenosis and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Biomarker of psychotic disorder and senile cataract.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
