Gene: Apoc2 (apolipoprotein C2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Apoc2
Name: apolipoprotein C2
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including enzyme regulator activity; phospholipase binding activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in lipoprotein transport and response to drug. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the low-density lipoprotein particle; spherical high-density lipoprotein particle; and triglyceride-rich plasma lipoprotein particle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial hyperlipidemia; familial lipoprotein lipase deficiency; and multiple sclerosis. Orthologous to human APOC2 (apolipoprotein C2); PARTICIPATES IN altered lipoprotein metabolic pathway; lipoprotein metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; bisphenol A; caffeine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
