A gene located distally on the short arm of the X chromosome (at Xp22.23) in the human pseudoautosomal region (q.v.). It therefore can undergo crossing over with an allele on the Y (at Yp11.3). MIC2 encodes a glycoprotein named CD99. This is an integral membrane protein found in hematopoietic cells and skin fibroblasts. See XG.
