Neuronal PAS domain-containing protein 2 is a protein that in humans is encoded by the NPAS2 gene.[1][2]

The protein encoded by this gene is a member of the basic helix-loop-helix (bHLH)-PAS family of transcription factors. A similar mouse protein may play a regulatory role in the acquisition of specific types of memory. It also may function as a part of a molecular clock operative in the mammalian forebrain.[3]

Interactions

NPAS2 has been shown to interact with Retinoic acid receptor alpha,[4] EP300,[5] ARNTL[4][6] and Retinoid X receptor alpha.[4]
