EFHD2

A gene on chromosome 1p36.21 that encodes an EF-hand-domain protein which may regulate B-cell-receptor-induced B-cell apoptosis. EFHD2 downregulates the canonical NF-kappB-activating branch and controls spontaneous apoptosis by regulating the amount of BCL2L1.

Clear water, for example, enables higher levels of opsin genes SWS1 and SWS2B expression, whereas fish that develop in dark water have high RH2 and LWS levels (Fuller, Carleton, Fadool, Spady, & Travis, 2005b).
As noted by SWS1, when both the carrier and the shipper join a VEP, it gives them more common ground for their relationship.
