Taxon:

Human

Gene:

PON2 (paraoxonase 2)

Chromosome:

07

Location:

7q21.3 (94.9 Mb Build 36.1)

Description:

The PON genes (1-3) are closely related paralogs (65% amino acid similarity) located adjacently on chromosome 7. These proteins have been associated with coronary heart disease.
Human PON2 is biallelically expressed in placenta and fetal tissues (Monk D et al, 2008).
The mouse homologue Pon2 is preferentially maternally expressed in placenta and yolk sac samples (day 10 and 13 respectively) (Ono R, et al. 2003).
