Gene: Atxn2 (ataxin 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Atxn2
Name: ataxin 2
Description: Predicted to have RNA binding activity; epidermal growth factor receptor binding activity; and protein C-terminus binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cytoplasmic mRNA processing body assembly; negative regulation of growth; and neuron differentiation. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including cytoplasmic stress granule; polysome; and trans-Golgi network. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in late onset Parkinson's disease and spinocerebellar ataxia type 2. Orthologous to human ATXN2 (ataxin 2); INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,6-dinitrotoluene; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: ataxin-2; LOC288663; Sca2; spinocerebellar ataxia 2 (olivopontocerebellar ataxia 2, autosomal dominant, ataxin 2)
