Bardet-Biedl syndrome 2 protein is a protein that in humans is encoded by the BBS2 gene.[1][2]

This gene encodes a protein of unknown function. Mutations in this gene have been observed in patients with Bardet-Biedl syndrome type 2. Bardet-Biedl syndrome is an autosomal recessive disorder characterized by severe pigmentary retinopathy, obesity, polydactyly, renal malformation, and mental retardation.[2]
