Gene: Efemp2 (epidermal growth factor-containing fibulin-like extracellular matrix protein 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Efemp2
Name: epidermal growth factor-containing fibulin-like extracellular matrix protein 2
Description: Predicted to have calcium ion binding activity and extracellular matrix constituent conferring elasticity. Involved in artery development and elastic fiber assembly. Localizes to the collagen-containing extracellular matrix and extracellular space. Used to study aortic aneurysm and cutis laxa. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive cutis laxa type IB. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; genitourinary system; gut; immune system; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human EFEMP2 (EGF containing fibulin extracellular matrix protein 2); INTERACTS WITH 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4,4'-diaminodiphenylmethane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 0610011K11Rik; EGF-containing fibulin-like extracellular matrix protein 2; EGF-containing fibulin-like extracellular matrix protein 2 (Efemp2); Fbln4; FIBL-4; fibulin 4; fibulin-4; MBP1; mutant p53-binding protein 1
