Gene: Uts2 (urotensin 2) Rattus norvegicus
Analyze
Symbol: Uts2
Name: urotensin 2
Description: Predicted to have hormone activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of secretion; regulation of blood pressure; and regulation of heart rate. Localizes to the extracellular space. Used to study hypertension. Biomarker of asthma; cardiomyopathy; endomyocardial fibrosis; myocardial infarction; and pulmonary hypertension. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in gestational diabetes and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human UTS2 (urotensin 2); INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol 3-benzoate; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: PROVISIONAL
Also known as: U-II; Ucn2; UII; urocortin 2; urotensin II; urotensin-2; urotensin-II
