Gene: Mal2 (mal, T-cell differentiation protein 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Mal2
Name: mal, T-cell differentiation protein 2
Description: Predicted to be a structural constituent of myelin sheath. Predicted to be involved in myelination. Localizes to the glutamatergic synapse; hippocampal mossy fiber to CA3 synapse; and integral component of synaptic vesicle membrane. Orthologous to human MAL2 (mal, T cell differentiation protein 2 (gene/pseudogene)); INTERACTS WITH bisphenol A; cobalt dichloride; diuron.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: MAL2 proteolipid protein; MAL2A
