Gene: Nell2 (NEL-like 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Nell2
Name: NEL-like 2
Description: Predicted to have heparin binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and protein kinase C binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including development of secondary female sexual characteristics; neuron cellular homeostasis; and positive regulation of hormone secretion. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including dendrite; extracellular space; and perikaryon. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; axial skeleton; central nervous system; eye; and limb mesenchyme. Orthologous to human NELL2 (neural EGFL like 2); INTERACTS WITH 2,2',4,4',5,5'-hexachlorobiphenyl; 2,2',5,5'-tetrachlorobiphenyl; 4,4'-sulfonyldiphenol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: A330108N19Rik; mel91; nel-like 2 homolog; NEL-like protein 2; protein kinase C-binding protein NELL2; R75516
