• Official Full Name
  • torsin family 2, member A
  • Background
  • This gene encodes a member of the AAA family of adenosine triphosphatases with similarity to Clp proteases and heat shock proteins. Alternative splicing at this locus results in the translation of multiple isoforms of the encoded protein, some of which contain salusin peptides in the C-terminal region. These peptides may play roles in hypotension, myocardial growth and the induction of mitogenesis, and may also be involved in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis.

Protein Function

TOR2A has several biochemical functions, for example, ATP binding, nucleotide binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by TOR2A itself. We selected most functions TOR2A had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with TOR2A. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
