Gene: Egr2 (early growth response 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Egr2
Name: early growth response 2
RGD ID: 621608
Description: Enables HMG box domain binding activity. Involved in learning or memory; regulation of neuronal synaptic plasticity; and response to insulin. Predicted to be located in cytoplasm and nucleoplasm. Biomarker of middle cerebral artery infarction. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 1D; Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 3; Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4E; and motor peripheral neuropathy. Orthologous to human EGR2 (early growth response 2); PARTICIPATES IN interleukin-4 signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
Previously known as: E3 SUMO-protein ligase EGR2; E3 SUMO-protein transferase ERG2; early growth response protein 2; EGR-2; Krox20; zinc finger protein Krox-20
