Gene: Nell2 (neural EGFL like 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Nell2
Name: neural EGFL like 2
Description: Exhibits heparin binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and protein kinase C binding activity. Involved in several processes, including development of secondary female sexual characteristics; neuron cellular homeostasis; and positive regulation of hormone secretion. Localizes to several cellular components, including dendrite; extracellular space; and perikaryon. Orthologous to human NELL2 (neural EGFL like 2); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; acrylamide; atrazine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: LOC681834; NEL-like 2; NEL-like 2 (chicken); nel-like 2 homolog (chicken); NEL-like protein 2; protein kinase C-binding protein NELL2; rCG50753-like; similar to protein kinase C-binding protein NELL2
