Gene: Muc2 (mucin 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Muc2
Name: mucin 2
Description: Involved in several processes, including epithelial cell development; negative regulation of cell migration; and positive regulation of apoptotic process. Localizes to extracellular matrix; inner mucus layer; and outer mucus layer. Used to study inflammatory bowel disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in asthma. Is expressed in ileum and intestine. Orthologous to human MUC2 (mucin 2, oligomeric mucus/gel-forming); PARTICIPATES IN Entamoebiasis pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,4,6-trinitrobenzenesulfonic acid; arsane; arsenic atom.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
