Gene: Plin2 (perilipin 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Plin2
Name: perilipin 2
Description: Involved in lipid storage and long-chain fatty acid transport. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cytosol; lipid droplet; and nucleus. Is expressed in pancreas epithelium. Orthologous to human PLIN2 (perilipin 2); PARTICIPATES IN hypoxia inducible factor pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1-dichloroethene; 17beta-estradiol; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: AA407157; Adfp; adipophilin; adipose differentiation related protein; adipose differentiation-related protein; ADPH; Adrp; perilipin-2
