Gene: Ucn2 (urocortin 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Ucn2
Name: urocortin 2
RGD ID: 620765
Description: Exhibits corticotropin-releasing hormone receptor 2 binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to glucocorticoid stimulus; cellular response to hypoxia; and negative regulation of gonadotropin secretion. Localizes to extracellular space. Biomarker of colitis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypertension. Orthologous to human UCN2 (urocortin 2); PARTICIPATES IN corticotropin-releasing hormone signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH ammonium chloride; bisphenol A; furan.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: ucn II; Ucn3; urocortin 3; Urocortin II; urocortin-2
