Gene: Pkp2 (plakophilin 2) Rattus norvegicus
Analyze
Symbol: Pkp2
Name: plakophilin 2
Description: Predicted to have several functions, including alpha-catenin binding activity; intermediate filament binding activity; and protein kinase C binding activity. Involved in several processes, including adherens junction maintenance; gap junction assembly; and regulation of bicellular tight junction assembly. Localizes to the adherens junction and intercalated disc. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy and arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia 9. Orthologous to human PKP2 (plakophilin 2); PARTICIPATES IN arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy pathway; INTERACTS WITH (RS)-amphetamine; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; 2,6-dinitrotoluene.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: PROVISIONAL
Also known as: LOC287925; plakophilin-2
