Gene: Msh2 (mutS homolog 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Msh2
Name: mutS homolog 2
RGD ID: 620786
Description: Predicted to contribute to several functions, including DNA binding activity; MutLalpha complex binding activity; and adenyl ribonucleotide binding activity. Involved in several processes, including response to amino acid; response to drug; and spermatogenesis. Localizes to nucleus. Biomarker of colitis and visual epilepsy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Lynch syndrome (multiple); breast cancer; colorectal cancer; and urinary bladder cancer. Orthologous to human MSH2 (mutS homolog 2); PARTICIPATES IN altered mismatch repair pathway; colorectal cancer pathway; mismatch repair pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 2,4-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: DNA mismatch repair protein Msh2; mismatch repair protein; mutS homolog 2 (E. coli); mutS protein homolog 2
