Gene: Col8a2 (collagen type VIII alpha 2 chain) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Col8a2
Name: collagen type VIII alpha 2 chain
Description: Predicted to have extracellular matrix structural constituent. Predicted to be involved in camera-type eye morphogenesis; epithelial cell proliferation; and extracellular matrix organization. Predicted to localize to the extracellular matrix and extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Fuchs' endothelial dystrophy and posterior polymorphous corneal dystrophy 2. Orthologous to human COL8A2 (collagen type VIII alpha 2 chain); PARTICIPATES IN syndecan signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH bisphenol A; diazinon; glycidol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: collagen alpha-2(VIII) chain; collagen, type VIII, alpha 2; LOC313592; procollagen, type VIII, alpha 2
