    RARRES2 / TIG2 Summary & Protein Information

    RARRES2 / TIG2 Background

    Gene Summary: RARRES2 gene encodes a secreted chemotactic protein that initiates chemotaxis via the ChemR23 G protein-coupled seven-transmembrane domain ligand. Expression of RARRES2 gene is upregulated by the synthetic retinoid tazarotene and occurs in a wide variety of tissues. The active protein has several roles, including that as an adipokine, and is truncated on both termini from the proprotein. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2008]

    Catalytic activity: 2 Phosphatidylglycerol = diphosphatidylglycerol + glycerol.
    Subcellular location: Secreted (Potential).
    Tissue specificity: Highly expressed in skin (basal and suprabasal layers of the epidermis, hair follicles and endothelial cells). Also found in pancreas, liver, spleen, prostate, ovary, small intestine and colon.
    Induction: Inhibited in psoriatic lesions. Activated by tazarotene in skin rafts and in the epidermis of psoriatic lesions.C
    Sequence similarity: Belongs to the CDP-alcohol phosphatidyltransferase class-I family.C
