Summaries for PRAC2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PRAC2 Gene

  • This gene is highly expressed in prostate, rectum, colon, and testis. This gene may produce a non-coding RNA or may encode a short protein that might localize to the nucleus. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]
