Gene: Npc2 (NPC intracellular cholesterol transporter 2) Rattus norvegicus
Analyze
Symbol: Npc2
Name: NPC intracellular cholesterol transporter 2
Description: Predicted to have cholesterol binding activity; cholesterol transfer activity; and enzyme binding activity. Predicted to be involved in cholesterol homeostasis; cholesterol transport; and response to virus. Predicted to localize to the extracellular space and lysosome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Niemann-Pick disease and Niemann-Pick disease type C2. Orthologous to human NPC2 (NPC intracellular cholesterol transporter 2); INTERACTS WITH 2,4-dinitrotoluene; acrylamide; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: epididymal secretory protein 1; epididymal secretory protein E1; Niemann Pick type C2; Niemann-Pick disease, type C2; re1
