The APOC2 gene is transcribed to yield mRNA and the mRNA is translated to yield protein.

Ligand-activated liver X receptors (LXRα, NR1H3 and LXRβ NR1H2) induce expression of a cluster of apolipoprotein genes APOE, APOC1, APOC2 and APOC4 in both human and mouse macrophages (Mak PA et al. 2002). The induction of all four mRNAs was greatly attenuated in peritoneal macrophages derived from LXR α/β-/- mice (Mak PA et al. 2002). Cel reporter assays suggest that the LXR response elements (LXRE) in the multienhancer regions ME.1 and ME.2, which confer tissue-specific expression in macrophages and adipocytes (Shih SJ et al. 2000), are necessary for the expression of this gene cluster (Mak PA et al. 2002). These secreted apolipoproteins regulate lipid transport and catabolism.
