High impact information on CD99L2


Biological context of CD99L2

  • Amino acid sequence alignment revealed five putative functional regions highly conserved between CD99L2 and CD99, indicating a close relationship between the two genes [1].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of CD99L2

  • As determined by in situ hybridization analysis, the CD99L2 gene appeared to be expressed particularly high in neuronal cells despite its ubiquitous distribution [1].
