Gene: Oaz2 (ornithine decarboxylase antizyme 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Oaz2
Name: ornithine decarboxylase antizyme 2
Description: Predicted to have ornithine decarboxylase inhibitor activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of polyamine transmembrane transport; positive regulation of intracellular protein transport; and positive regulation of protein catabolic process. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm and nucleus. Orthologous to human OAZ2 (ornithine decarboxylase antizyme 2); PARTICIPATES IN polyamine metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH (+)-schisandrin B; bisphenol A; C60 fullerene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
