TAFA2/FAM19A2 cDNA Clone: Expression and Clone Vector / Plasmid

TAFA2/FAM19A2 cDNA / Gene Overview

FAM19A2 gene / cDNA is a protein-coding gene which located on 12q14.1. The FAM19A2 gene is conserved in chimpanzee, Rhesus monkey, dog, cow, mouse, rat, chicken, zebrafish, and frog.200 organisms have orthologs with human gene FAM19A2.

TAFA2/FAM19A2 cDNA / Gene Function

This gene is a member of the TAFA family which is composed of five highly homologous genes that encode small secreted proteins. These proteins contain conserved cysteine residues at fixed positions, and are distantly related to MIP-1alpha, a member of the CC-chemokine family. The TAFA proteins are predominantly expressed in specific regions of the brain, and are postulated to function as brain-specific chemokines or neurokines, that act as regulators of immune and nervous cells.
