Gene: Bscl2 (Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy 2 (seipin)) Mus musculus
Symbol: Bscl2
Name: Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy 2 (seipin)
Description: Involved in several processes, including cytosolic lipolysis; lipid droplet formation; and positive regulation of cold-induced thermogenesis. Localizes to the endoplasmic reticulum. Used to study congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 2 and male infertility. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital generalized lipodystrophy type 2; distal hereditary motor neuronopathy type 5A; hereditary spastic paraplegia; hereditary spastic paraplegia 17; and lipodystrophy. Is expressed in early conceptus and secondary oocyte. Orthologous to human BSCL2 (BSCL2 lipid droplet biogenesis associated, seipin); INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 4-nitroquinoline N-oxide.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 2900097C17Rik; AI046355; Berardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy 2 homolog (seipin); Bernardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy 2 homolog; bernardinelli-Seip congenital lipodystrophy type 2 protein homolog; G protein gamma 3 linked; Gng3lg; seipin
