Gene: CALB2 (calbindin 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CALB2
Name: calbindin 2
Description: Predicted to have calcium ion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in regulation of long-term synaptic potentiation and regulation of presynaptic cytosolic calcium ion concentration. Localizes to the cytosol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
