Gene: Bfsp2 (beaded filament structural protein 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Bfsp2
Name: beaded filament structural protein 2
Description: Predicted to be a structural constituent of eye lens. Predicted to be involved in cell maturation; intermediate filament cytoskeleton organization; and lens fiber cell development. Predicted to localize to the cytoplasm and intermediate filament; INTERACTS WITH (RS)-amphetamine; atrazine; paracetamol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: beaded filament structural protein 2, phakinin; LOC501046; phakinin; similar to Phakinin (Beaded filament structural protein 2) (Lens fiber cell beaded filament protein CP 49) (CP49) (49 kDa cytoskeletal protein)
