Summaries for CLCN2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CLCN2 Gene

  • This gene encodes a voltage-gated chloride channel. The encoded protein is a transmembrane protein that maintains chloride ion homeostasis in various cells. Defects in this gene may be a cause of certain epilepsies. Four transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]

GeneCards Summary for CLCN2 Gene

CLCN2 (Chloride Voltage-Gated Channel 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CLCN2 include leukoencephalopathy with ataxia and epilepsy, idiopathic generalized 11. Among its related pathways are Mineral absorption and Activation of cAMP-Dependent PKA. GO annotations related to this gene include ion channel activity and voltage-gated chloride channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is CLCN7.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CLCN2 Gene

  • Voltage-gated chloride channel. Chloride channels have several functions including the regulation of cell volume; membrane potential stabilization, signal transduction and transepithelial transport.

CLCN2_HUMAN
  • Epilepsy, idiopathic generalized 11 (EIG11) [MIM:607628]: A disorder characterized by recurring generalized seizures in the absence of detectable brain lesions and/or metabolic abnormalities. Generalized seizures arise diffusely and simultaneously from both hemispheres of the brain. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19191339}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Juvenile absence epilepsy 2 (JAE2) [MIM:607628]: A subtype of idiopathic generalized epilepsy characterized by onset occurring around puberty, absence seizures, generalized tonic-clonic seizures (GTCS), GTCS on awakening, and myoclonic seizures. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:12612585, ECO:0000269 PubMed:19710712}. Note=Disease susceptibility may be associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Juvenile myoclonic epilepsy 8 (EJM8) [MIM:607628]: A subtype of idiopathic generalized epilepsy. Patients have afebrile seizures only, with onset in adolescence (rather than in childhood) and myoclonic jerks which usually occur after awakening and are triggered by sleep deprivation and fatigue. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:19191339}. Note=Disease susceptibility is associated with variations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Leukoencephalopathy with ataxia (LKPAT) [MIM:615651]: An autosomal recessive neurologic disorder with a characteristic pattern of white matter abnormalities on brain MRI. Affected individuals have prominent signal abnormalities and decreased apparent diffusion coefficient values in the posterior limbs of the internal capsules, middle cerebral peduncles, pyramidal tracts in the pons, and middle cerebellar peduncles, suggesting myelin microvacuolation. Clinical features include ataxia and unstable gait. More variable abnormalities may include visual field defects, headaches, and learning disabilities. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:23707145}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
