GeneCards Summary for KCNT2 Gene
KCNT2 (Potassium Sodium-Activated Channel Subfamily T Member 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Neuropathic Pain-Signaling in Dorsal Horn Neurons and Activation of cAMP-Dependent PKA. GO annotations related to this gene include voltage-gated potassium channel activity and calcium-activated potassium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is KCNU1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for KCNT2 Gene
Outward rectifying potassium channel. Produces rapidly activating outward rectifier K(+) currents. Activated by high intracellular sodium and chloride levels. Channel activity is inhibited by ATP and by inhalation anesthetics, such as isoflurane (By similarity). Inhibited upon stimulation of G-protein coupled receptors, such as CHRM1 and GRIA1.
Calcium (Ca2+) -activated potassium channels (KCa) are a group of 6/7-TM ion channels that selectively transport K+ ions across biological membranes. They are broadly classified into three subtypes: SK, IK and BK channels (small, intermediate and big conductance).
