Gene: Igf2 (insulin-like growth factor 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Igf2
Name: insulin-like growth factor 2
RGD ID: 2870
Description: Predicted to have protein serine/threonine kinase activator activity and signaling receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to mechanical stimulus; positive regulation of blood vessel endothelial cell migration; and positive regulation of vascular endothelial cell proliferation. Localizes to extracellular space. Used to study osteoporosis. Biomarker of several diseases, including alcoholic neuropathy; brain infarction; congenital diaphragmatic hernia; diabetes mellitus (multiple); and hepatocellular carcinoma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Silver-Russell syndrome; choriocarcinoma; hepatocellular carcinoma; and rheumatoid arthritis. Orthologous to human IGF2 (insulin like growth factor 2); PARTICIPATES IN insulin-like growth factor signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (S)-nicotine; 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
