Gene: Slit2 (slit guidance ligand 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Slit2
Name: slit guidance ligand 2
CRRD ID: 735484
Description: Exhibits chemorepellent activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; generation of neurons; and negative chemotaxis. Localizes to extracellular space. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; limb; and sensory organ. Used to study Kartagener syndrome; cystic kidney disease; primary ciliary dyskinesia; and visceral heterotaxy. Orthologous to human SLIT2 (slit guidance ligand 2).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
