CTNNA2 (Catenin (Cadherin-Associated Protein), Alpha 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CTNNA2 include benign schwannoma. Among its related pathways are Pathways in cancer and L1CAM interactions. GO annotations related to this gene include structural constituent of cytoskeleton and cadherin binding. An important paralog of this gene is CTNNA3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CTNNA2 Gene
May function as a linker between cadherin adhesion receptors and the cytoskeleton to regulate cell-cell adhesion and differentiation in the nervous system. Regulates morphological plasticity of synapses and cerebellar and hippocampal lamination during development. Functions in the control of startle modulation (By similarity).
