Gene: CRY2 (cryptochrome circadian regulator 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CRY2
Name: cryptochrome circadian regulator 2
Description: Exhibits damaged DNA binding activity; phosphatase binding activity; and single-stranded DNA binding activity. Involved in negative regulation of nitrogen compound metabolic process; regulation of sodium-dependent phosphate transport; and response to light stimulus. Localizes to the cytosol; extracellular region; and nuclear speck.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: cryptochrome 2 (photolyase-like); cryptochrome circadian clock 2; cryptochrome-2; FLJ10332; growth-inhibiting protein 37; HCRY2; KIAA0658; PHLL2
