SYCP2


synaptonemal complex protein 2


ENTREZID: 10388 | Type: Protein Coding | Map: 20q13.33

OMIM: 607067


Summary Entrez
The synaptonemal complex is a proteinaceous structure that links homologous chromosomes during the prophase of meiosis. The protein encoded by this gene is a major component of the synaptonemal complex and may bind DNA at scaffold attachment regions. The encoded protein requires synaptonemal complex protein 3, but not 1, for inclusion in the synaptonemal complex. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
