Gene: Mfn2 (mitofusin 2) Rattus norvegicus
Analyze
Symbol: Mfn2
Name: mitofusin 2
Description: Exhibits several functions, including GTP binding activity; protein homodimerization activity; and proteoglycan binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of cell death; positive regulation of female gonad development; and regulation of cell development. Localizes to the cytosol and intrinsic component of mitochondrial outer membrane. Used to study carotid stenosis. Biomarker of several diseases, including artery disease (multiple); fatty liver disease (multiple); obesity; prediabetes syndrome; and transient cerebral ischemia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease; Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 2A2; and Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 6. Orthologous to human MFN2 (mitofusin 2); PARTICIPATES IN mitochondria fusion pathway; INTERACTS WITH (-)-epigallocatechin 3-gallate; (RS)-amphetamine; 2,4-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: PROVISIONAL
Also known as: HSG; hypertension-related protein; mitochondrial transmembrane GTPase FZO1A; mitofusin-2; transmembrane GTPase MFN2
