V-erbA-related protein 2 (EAR-2) also known as NR2F6 (nuclear receptor subfamily 2 group F member 6) is a protein that in humans is encoded by the NR2F6 gene.[1] V-erbA-related protein 2 is a member of the nuclear receptor family of intracellular transcription factors.


Comparatively little is known about ear-2, but it has been shown to function as a coregulator of other nuclear receptors.[2][3]

Nr2f6 knockout mice show defects in development of the locus ceruleus.[4]
