Gene: Brca2 (BRCA2, DNA repair associated) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Brca2
Name: BRCA2, DNA repair associated
Description: Exhibits single-stranded DNA binding activity. Involved in several processes, including homologous chromosome orientation involved in meiotic metaphase I plate congression; response to estradiol; and spermatogenesis. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including BRCA2-MAGE-D1 complex; centrosome; and nuclear lumen. Used to study cataract; infertility; and osteosarcoma. Biomarker of prostate cancer. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in several diseases, including Fanconi anemia (multiple); brain cancer (multiple); hereditary breast ovarian cancer syndrome; melanoma (multiple); and reproductive organ cancer (multiple). Orthologous to human BRCA2 (BRCA2 DNA repair associated); PARTICIPATES IN homologous recombination pathway of double-strand break repair; ceramide signaling pathway; pancreatic cancer pathway; INTERACTS WITH acetamide; aflatoxin B1; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: breast cancer 2; breast cancer 2, early onset; breast cancer 2, mutation 1, University of Wisconsin-Madison; breast cancer susceptibility protein 2; breast cancer type 2 susceptibility protein homolog; fanconi anemia group D1 protein homolog
