Gene: DCHS2 (dachsous cadherin-related 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: DCHS2
Name: dachsous cadherin-related 2
Description: Predicted to have calcium ion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in condensed mesenchymal cell proliferation; homophilic cell adhesion via plasma membrane adhesion molecules; and nephron development. Predicted to localize to the integral component of membrane and plasma membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
