Symbol: Kcnn2
Name: potassium calcium-activated channel subfamily N member 2
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits calmodulin binding; small conductance calcium-activated potassium channel activity; alpha-actinin binding (ortholog); INVOLVED IN potassium ion transport; regulation of neuronal synaptic plasticity; membrane repolarization during atrial cardiac muscle cell action potential (ortholog); PARTICIPATES IN calcium/calcium-mediated signaling pathway; bile acid transport pathway; ASSOCIATED WITH atrial fibrillation (ortholog); autistic disorder (ortholog); genetic disease (ortholog); FOUND IN dendritic spine; integral component of membrane; neuronal cell body; INTERACTS WITH (+)-pilocarpine; 2,3,7,8-tetrachlorodibenzodioxine; aflatoxin B1
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: KCa2.2; potassium channel, calcium activated intermediate/small conductance subfamily N alpha, member 2; potassium intermediate/small conductance calcium-activated channel, subfamily N, member 2; SK2; SKCa 2; SKCa2; small conductance calcium-activated channel, subfamily N, member 2; small conductance calcium-activated potassium channel protein 2
