Summaries for MCOLN2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for MCOLN2 Gene

  • Mucolipins constitute a family of cation channel proteins with homology to the transient receptor potential superfamily. In mammals, the mucolipin family includes 3 members, MCOLN1 (MIM 605248), MCOLN2, and MCOLN3 (MIM 607400), that exhibit a common 6-membrane-spanning topology. Homologs of mammalian mucolipins exist in Drosophila and C. elegans. Mutations in the human MCOLN1 gene cause mucolipodosis IV (MIM 262650) (Karacsonyi et al., 2007 [PubMed 17662026]).[supplied by OMIM, Sep 2009]

GeneCards Summary for MCOLN2 Gene

MCOLN2 (Mucolipin 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Ion channel transport and TRP channels. An important paralog of this gene is MCOLN3.
