Gene: Hmox2 (heme oxygenase 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Hmox2
Name: heme oxygenase 2
RGD ID: 68992
Description: Predicted to have heme binding activity and heme oxygenase (decyclizing) activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including iron ion homeostasis; porphyrin-containing compound catabolic process; and response to hypoxia. Predicted to localize to plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; integumental system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human HMOX2 (heme oxygenase 2); PARTICIPATES IN porphyrin and chlorophyll metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1,1-Trichloro-2-(o-chlorophenyl)-2-(p-chlorophenyl)ethane; 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: heme oxygenase (decycling) 2; HO; HO-; HO-2; HO2
