NPC2 Gene Sequence, Family, Fuction and Expression Information

NPC2 cDNA / Gene Overview

NPC2 gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 14q24.3. The NPC2 gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken, zebrafish, fruit fly, and frog.240 organisms have orthologs with human gene NPC2.

NPC2 cDNA / Gene Function

This gene encodes a protein containing a lipid recognition domain. The encoded protein may function in regulating the transport of cholesterol through the late endosomal/lysosomal system. Mutations in this gene have been associated with Niemann-Pick disease, type C2 and frontal lobe atrophy. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
