Human symbol has changed for genepage ID: 6258150 From cecr1 to ADA2

undated change:

Human name changed from : cat eye syndrome chromosome region, candidate 1 to: adenosine deaminase 2


This gene encodes a member of a subfamily of the adenosine deaminase protein family. The encoded protein is one of two adenosine deaminases found in humans, which regulate levels of the signaling molecule, adenosine. The encoded protein is secreted from monocytes undergoing differentiation and may regulate cell proliferation and differentiation. This gene may be responsible for some of the phenotypic features associated with cat eye syndrome. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]
