Gene: CHP2 (calcineurin like EF-hand protein 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CHP2
Name: calcineurin like EF-hand protein 2
Description: Exhibits calcium ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of calcineurin-NFAT signaling cascade; positive regulation of cellular metabolic process; and positive regulation of protein import into nucleus. Localizes to the cytoplasm; nucleus; and plasma membrane.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: calcineurin B homologous protein 2; calcineurin-like EF hand protein 2; calcineurin-like EF-hand protein 2; hepatocellular carcinoma antigen gene 520; hepatocellular carcinoma-associated antigen 520
