Gene: Nptx2 (neuronal pentraxin 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Nptx2
Name: neuronal pentraxin 2
Description: Predicted to have carbohydrate binding activity and metal ion binding activity. Involved in neurotransmitter receptor localization to postsynaptic specialization membrane. Localizes to the extrinsic component of postsynaptic specialization membrane and glutamatergic synapse. Orthologous to human NPTX2 (neuronal pentraxin 2); INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; (+)-schisandrin B; 1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazinane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: LOC288475; Narp; neuro activity regulated petaxin; Neuronal activity regulated pentraxin; neuronal activity-regulated pentraxin; neuronal pentraxin II; neuronal pentraxin-2; NP-II; NP2
