Gene: Becn2 (beclin 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Becn2
Name: beclin 2
Description: Predicted to be involved in several processes, including G protein-coupled receptor catabolic process; late endosome to vacuole transport; and protein localization by the Cvt pathway. Predicted to localize to the phagophore assembly site; phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase complex, class III, type I; and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase complex, class III, type II. Orthologous to human BECN2 (beclin 2); INTERACTS WITH bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: MODEL
Also known as: beclin-2; LOC289269; RGD1563293; similar to Beclin 1 (Coiled-coil myosin-like BCL2-interacting protein); similar to Beclin 1 (Coiled-coil myosin-like BCL2-interacting protein) (Protein GT197)
