Ankyrin-2 or -Ankyrin-B is encoded by the gene ANK2. Ankyrin B is a scaffold protein that functions to link proteins that mediate the attachment of integral membrane proteins to the spectrin-actin based membrane cytoskeleton. In this manner, ankyrin family proteins play key roles in various processes including cell motility, activation, proliferation, contact and the maintenance of specialized membrane domains. Ankyrin B is expressed in brain and muscle. Mutations in this gene cause long QT syndrome 4 and cardiac arrhythmia syndrome.
