|Official Full Name||relaxin 2|
|Background||Relaxins are known endocrine and autocrine/paracrine hormones, belonging to the insulin gene superfamily. In the human there are three non-allelic relaxin genes, RLN1, RLN2 and RLN3. RLN1 and RLN2 share high sequence homology. The active form of the encoded protein consists of an A chain and a B chain but their cleavage sites are not definitely described yet. Relaxin is produced by the ovary, and targets the mammalian reproductive system to ripen the cervix, elongate the pubic symphysis and inhibit uterine contraction. It may have additional roles in enhancing sperm motility, regulating blood pressure, controlling heart rate and releasing oxytocin and vasopressin. There are two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms described for this gene.|

rln2 has several biochemical functions, for example, hormone activity. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by rln2 itself. We selected most functions rln2 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with rln2. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
|hormone activity||PTH1B; FSD1; UTS2; PRL2C3; METRNL; INS1; POMCA; RLN3A; PRL2; HAMP|
rln2 has direct interactions with proteins and molecules. Those interactions were detected by several methods such as yeast two hybrid, co-IP, pull-down and so on. We selected proteins and molecules interacted with rln2 here. Most of them are supplied by our site. Hope this information will be useful for your research of rln2.
