Gene: POLA2 (DNA polymerase alpha 2, accessory subunit) Homo sapiens
Symbol: POLA2
Name: DNA polymerase alpha 2, accessory subunit
Description: Predicted to have protein heterodimerization activity. Predicted to be involved in DNA replication initiation. Localizes to the alpha DNA polymerase:primase complex; cytosol; and nucleoplasm; PARTICIPATES IN DNA replication pathway; purine metabolic pathway; pyrimidine metabolic pathway; INTERACTS WITH (-)-demecolcine; (-)-epigallocatechin 3-gallate; 2-hydroxypropanoic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
