ABHD2 | GeneID:11057 | Homo sapiens

Gene Summary

[ - ] NCBI Entrez Gene

Gene ID 11057 Official Symbol ABHD2
Locus N/A Gene Type protein-coding
Synonyms HS1-2; LABH2; MGC111112; MGC26249; PHPS1-2
Full Name abhydrolase domain containing 2
Description abhydrolase domain containing 2
Chromosome 15q26.1
Also Known As alpha/beta hydrolase domain containing protein 2; lung alpha/beta hydrolase 2
Summary This gene encodes a protein containing an alpha/beta hydrolase fold, which is a catalytic domain found in a very wide range of enzymes. The function of this protein has not been determined. Alternative splicing of this gene results in two transcript variants encoding the same protein. [provided by RefSeq]
