Previous GeneCards Identifiers for ATP6V0A2 Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a subunit of the vacuolar ATPase (v-ATPase), an heteromultimeric enzyme that is present in intracellular vesicles and in the plasma membrane of specialized cells, and which is essential for the acidification of diverse cellular components. V-ATPase is comprised of a membrane peripheral V(1) domain for ATP hydrolysis, and an integral membrane V(0) domain for proton translocation. The subunit encoded by this gene is a component of the V(0) domain. Mutations in this gene are a cause of both cutis laxa type II and wrinkly skin syndrome. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2009]
GeneCards Summary for ATP6V0A2 Gene
ATP6V0A2 (ATPase H+ Transporting V0 Subunit A2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ATP6V0A2 include wrinkly skin syndrome and cutis laxa, autosomal recessive, type iia. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Metabolism. GO annotations related to this gene include ATPase binding and proton-transporting ATPase activity, rotational mechanism.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ATP6V0A2 Gene
Part of the proton channel of V-ATPases. Essential component of the endosomal pH-sensing machinery. May play a role in maintaining the Golgi functions, such as glycosylation maturation, by controlling the Golgi pH.
H+-ATPase (also known as vacuolar ATPase, V-ATPase) is a enzyme transporter that functions to acidify intracellular compartments in eukaryotic cells. It is ubiquitously expressed and is present in endomembrane organelles such as vacuoles, lysosomes and endosomes.
