Gene: Lim2 (lens intrinsic membrane protein 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Lim2
Name: lens intrinsic membrane protein 2
RGD ID: 621482
Description: Predicted to be a structural constituent of eye lens. Predicted to be involved in lens development in camera-type eye. Localizes to plasma membrane and vesicle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cataract and cataract 19 multiple types. Orthologous to human LIM2 (lens intrinsic membrane protein 2); INTERACTS WITH acrylamide; ammonium chloride; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: lens fiber membrane intrinsic protein; lens intrinsic membrane protein 2 (19 kDa); lens intrinsic membrane protein 2, 19kDa; MP17; MP18; Mp19; MP20
