Gene: Tac2 (tachykinin 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Tac2
Name: tachykinin 2
RGD ID: 736131
Description: Predicted to have neuromedin K receptor binding activity and substance K receptor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in positive regulation of blood pressure and positive regulation of flagellated sperm motility. Predicted to localize to extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system gland; and liver and biliary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hypogonadotropic hypogonadism 10 with or without anosmia. Orthologous to human TAC3 (tachykinin precursor 3).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: neurokinin 2; neurokinin A; neurokinin alpha; neurokinin B-like protein Zneurok1; neuromedin L; neuropeptide K; PPT-B; preprotachykinin-B; substance K; Tac3; tachykinin-3
