Gene: HOMER2 (homer scaffold protein 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: HOMER2
Name: homer scaffold protein 2
Description: This gene encodes a member of the homer family of dendritic proteins. Members of this family regulate group 1 metabotrophic glutamate receptor function. The encoded protein is a postsynaptic density scaffolding protein. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. Two related pseudogenes have been identified on chromosome 14. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2011]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
