Previous GeneCards Identifiers for POPDC2 Gene
This gene encodes a member of the POP family of proteins which contain three putative transmembrane domains. This membrane associated protein is predominantly expressed in skeletal and cardiac muscle, and may have an important function in these tissues. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for POPDC2 Gene
POPDC2 (Popeye Domain Containing 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include cAMP binding. An important paralog of this gene is POPDC3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for POPDC2 Gene
Important for the maintenance of cardiac function. Plays a regulatory function in heart rate dynamics mediated, at least in part, through cAMP-binding and, probably, by increasing cell surface expression of the potassium channel KCNK2 and enhancing current density.
