Gene: ACO2 (aconitase 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: ACO2
Name: aconitase 2
Description: Exhibits aconitate hydratase activity and iron ion binding activity. Involved in citrate metabolic process and tricarboxylic acid cycle. Localizes to mitochondrion. Implicated in infantile cerebellar-retinal degeneration and optic atrophy 9.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
