Gene: VCX2 (variable charge X-linked 2) Homo sapiens
Analyze
Symbol: VCX2
Name: variable charge X-linked 2
Description: This gene belongs to the VCX/Y gene family, which has multiple members on both X and Y chromosomes that are expressed exclusively in male germ cells. The VCX gene cluster is polymorphic in terms of copy number; different individuals may have a different number of VCX genes. This gene contains two copies of a 30 nt tandem repeat. Deletion of a nearby member of this family was implicated in cognitive disability. [provided by RefSeq, Feb 2015]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
