Gene: Zp2 (zona pellucida glycoprotein 2) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Zp2
Name: zona pellucida glycoprotein 2
RGD ID: 620605
Description: Predicted to have acrosin binding activity and identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in binding activity of sperm to zona pellucida; humoral immune response mediated by circulating immunoglobulin; and prevention of polyspermy. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including egg coat; inclusion body; and multivesicular body. Orthologous to human ZP2 (zona pellucida glycoprotein 2); INTERACTS WITH 1,2-dimethylhydrazine; bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate; bisphenol A.
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: zona pellucida 2 glycoprotein; zona pellucida glycoprotein 2 (sperm receptor); zona pellucida glycoprotein ZP2; zona pellucida protein A; zona pellucida sperm-binding protein 2; Zp-2
