GeneCards Summary for KCNS2 Gene
KCNS2 (Potassium Voltage-Gated Channel, Modifier Subfamily S, Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Transmission across Chemical Synapses and Dopamine-DARPP32 Feedback onto cAMP Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include delayed rectifier potassium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is KCNB2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KCNS2 Gene
Potassium channel subunit. Modulates channel activity and reduces the ion flow (By similarity).
Voltage-gated potassium channels (KV) belong to the 6-TM family of potassium channel that also comprises the Ca2+-activated Slo (actually 7-TM) and the Ca2+-activated SK subfamilies. The pore-forming alpha-subunits contain a single pore-forming region and combine to form tetramers. Heteromeric channels can be formed within subfamilies e.g. KV1.1 with KV1.2 and KCNQ2 with KCNQ3.
