Summaries for CLDN2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CLDN2 Gene

  • This gene product belongs to the claudin protein family whose members have been identified as major integral membrane proteins localized exclusively at tight junctions. Claudins are expressed in an organ-specific manner and regulate tissue-specific physiologic properties of tight junctions. This protein is expressed in the intestine. Alternatively spliced transcript variants with different 5' untranslated region have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Jan 2010]

GeneCards Summary for CLDN2 Gene

CLDN2 (Claudin 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CLDN2 include cholecystitis. Among its related pathways are Sertoli-Sertoli Cell Junction Dynamics and Blood-Brain Barrier and Immune Cell Transmigration: Pathways Overview. GO annotations related to this gene include identical protein binding and structural molecule activity. An important paralog of this gene is CLDN9.
