Midline-2 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the MID2 gene.[3][4]

Function[edit]

The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the tripartite motif (TRIM) family. The TRIM motif includes three zinc-binding domains, a RING, a B-box type 1 and a B-box type 2, and a coiled-coil region. The protein localizes to microtubular structures in the cytoplasm. Its function has not been identified. Alternate splicing of this gene results in two transcript variants encoding different isoforms.[4]

Interactions[edit]

MID2 has been shown to interact with MID1.[5][6]
