Gene: Rp2 (retinitis pigmentosa 2 homolog) Mus musculus
Symbol: Rp2
Name: retinitis pigmentosa 2 homolog
Description: Predicted to have GTPase activator activity and magnesium ion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in post-Golgi vesicle-mediated transport. Localizes to the Golgi apparatus; microtubule organizing center; and periciliary membrane compartment. Used to study retinitis pigmentosa 2. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in retinitis pigmentosa and retinitis pigmentosa 2. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; liver; lung; sensory organ; and spleen. Orthologous to human RP2 (RP2 activator of ARL3 GTPase); INTERACTS WITH 4-hydroxyphenyl retinamide; aflatoxin B1; arsane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
