Gene: HAS2 (hyaluronan synthase 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: HAS2
Name: hyaluronan synthase 2
Description: Exhibits hyaluronan synthase activity and identical protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to cytokine stimulus; hyaluronan biosynthetic process; and positive regulation of monocyte aggregation. Localizes to the integral component of plasma membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: HA synthase 2; hyaluronate synthase 2; hyaluronic acid synthase 2; MGC126241; MGC126242
