Gene: IRS2 (insulin receptor substrate 2) Homo sapiens
Symbol: IRS2
Name: insulin receptor substrate 2
Description: Predicted to have insulin receptor binding activity and phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase binding activity. Involved in cellular response to insulin stimulus; positive regulation of small molecule metabolic process; and regulation of transmembrane transport. Predicted to localize to the cytosol and plasma membrane. Implicated in type 2 diabetes mellitus. Biomarker of Alzheimer's disease.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: IRS-2
