Gene: Uts2 (urotensin 2) Mus musculus
Symbol: Uts2
Name: urotensin 2
CRRD ID: 737600
Description: Predicted to have hormone activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including negative regulation of secretion; regulation of blood pressure; and regulation of heart rate. Predicted to localize to extracellular space. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in gestational diabetes; hypertension; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human UTS2 (urotensin 2).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
