Gene: CAV2 (caveolin 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CAV2
Name: caveolin 2
Description: Exhibits D1 dopamine receptor binding activity and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including caveola assembly; positive regulation by host of viral release from host cell; and positive regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to several cellular components, including the caveola; extrinsic component of cytoplasmic side of plasma membrane; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Colocalizes with the focal adhesion. Implicated in low tension glaucoma and primary open angle glaucoma. Biomarker of tongue squamous cell carcinoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: CAV; caveolae protein, 20-kD; caveolin 2 isoform a and b; caveolin-2; MGC12294
