High impact information on SCP2


Biological context of SCP2

  • 3. The chicken 12 kDa SCP2-like protein purifies similarly to rat SCP2 but the homogeneous chicken SCP2-like protein is dissimilar in amino acid composition and N-terminal amino acid sequence [4].

Anatomical context of SCP2


Associations of SCP2 with chemical compounds

  • The stimulatory effect of adrenal cytosolic preparations on mitochondrial pregnenolone production can be completely abolished by pretreatment with anti SCP2 IgG [5].
