Summaries for TULP2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TULP2 Gene

  • TULP2 is a member of a family of tubby-like genes (TULPs) that encode proteins of unknown function. Members of this family have been identified in plants, vertebrates, and invertebrates. The TULP proteins share a conserved C-terminal region of approximately 200 amino acid residues. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
