Gene: Col6a2 (collagen type VI alpha 2 chain) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Col6a2
Name: collagen type VI alpha 2 chain
CRRD ID: 1305585
Description: Predicted to have collagen binding activity. Involved in response to glucose. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including collagen-containing extracellular matrix; extracellular space; and sarcolemma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Ullrich congenital muscular dystrophy. Orthologous to human COL6A2 (collagen type VI alpha 2 chain); PARTICIPATES IN syndecan signaling pathway; cell-extracellular matrix signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1-naphthyl isothiocyanate; 2,2',4,4'-Tetrabromodiphenyl ether; 2,2,2-tetramine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: collagen alpha-2(VI) chain; collagen, type VI, alpha 2; LOC361821; procollagen, type VI, alpha 2
