Gene: Cldn2 (claudin 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cldn2
Name: claudin 2
Description: Predicted to have identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in bicellular tight junction assembly and calcium-independent cell-cell adhesion via plasma membrane cell-adhesion molecules. Predicted to localize to bicellular tight junction and plasma membrane. Orthologous to human CLDN2 (claudin 2); PARTICIPATES IN hepatitis C pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-alpha-tocopherol; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
