Profilin 2, also known as PFN2, is a human gene.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: PFN2 profilin 2| url =| accessdate = ]

section_title =
summary_text = The protein encoded by this gene is a ubiquitous actin monomer-binding protein belonging to the profilin family. It is thought to regulate actin polymerization in response to extracellular signals. There are two alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms described for this gene.cite web | title = Entrez Gene: PFN2 profilin 2| url =| accessdate = ]
