Apolipoprotein L2 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the APOL2 gene.[1][2][3]

This gene is a member of the apolipoprotein L gene family. The encoded protein is found in the cytoplasm, where it may affect the movement of lipids or allow the binding of lipids to organelles. Two transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene.[3]
