Previous GeneCards Identifiers for RBPMS2 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the RNA recognition motif (RRM)-containing protein family and is involved in the development and dedifferentiation of digestive smooth muscle cells. The encoded protein functions as a homodimer and indirectly inhibits the bone morphogenetic protein pathway. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2016]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for RBPMS2 Gene
Contributes to the regulation of smooth muscle cell differentiation and proliferation in the gastrointestinal system. Binds NOG mRNA. Mediates an increase of NOG mRNA levels, and thereby contributes to the negative regulation of the BMP signaling pathway. This promotes reversible dedifferentiation of smooth muscle cells and promotes smooth muscle cell proliferation.
