Summaries for TSPAN2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TSPAN2 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the transmembrane 4 superfamily, also known as the tetraspanin family. Most of these members are cell-surface proteins that are characterized by the presence of four hydrophobic domains. The proteins mediate signal transduction events that play a role in the regulation of cell development, activation, growth and motility. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for TSPAN2 Gene

TSPAN2 (Tetraspanin 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TSPAN2 include clonorchiasis. An important paralog of this gene is TSPAN9.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TSPAN2 Gene

  • May play a role in signalling in oligodendrocytes in the early stages of their terminal differentiation into myelin-forming glia and may also function in stabilizing the mature sheath.
