Description

reticulon 2

Gene Summary

This gene belongs to the family of reticulon encoding genes. Reticulons are associated with the endoplasmic reticulum, and are involved in neuroendocrine secretion or in membrane trafficking in neuroendocrine cells. Reticulon proteins also play an important role in the replication of positive-strand RNA (ssRNA) viruses. Mutations at this locus have been associated with autosomal dominant spastic paraplegia-12.
