Summaries for KCNS2 Gene

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 Potassium Channels. GO annotations related to this gene include ion channel activity and delayed rectifier potassium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is KCNB1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KCNS2 Gene

  • Potassium channel subunit that does not form functional channels by itself. Can form functional heterotetrameric channels with KCNB1 and KCNB2; modulates the delayed rectifier voltage-gated potassium channel activation and deactivation rates of KCNB1 and KCNB2.

Tocris Summary for KCNS2 Gene

  • 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 alpha-subunits contain a single pore-forming region and combine to form tetramers.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot:

KCNS2_HUMAN :
  • The transmembrane segment S4 functions as voltage-sensor and is characterized by a series of positively charged amino acids at every third position. Channel opening and closing is effected by a conformation change that affects the position and orientation of the voltage-sensor paddle formed by S3 and S4 within the membrane. A transmembrane electric field that is positive inside would push the positively charged S4 segment outwards, thereby opening the pore, while a field that is negative inside would pull the S4 segment inwards and close the pore. Changes in the position and orientation of S4 are then transmitted to the activation gate formed by the inner helix bundle via the S4-S5 linker region.
  • Belongs to the potassium channel family. S (TC 1.A.1.2) subfamily. Kv9.2/KCNS2 sub-subfamily.
