Potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily D member 2 (RK5) (Shal1) (Voltage-gated potassium channel subunit Kv4.2)
Potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily D member 2 or Kv4.2 potassium channel subunit is encoded by the gene KCND2. Kv4.2 is an alpha subunit of the voltage-gated potassium channel (Shal) family and mediates transmembrane potassium transport in excitable membranes. Kv4.2 is an integral membrane protein that combines to form tetramers. Kv4.2 is detected in the heart and brain. In brain it is found at the cell junction, synapse, postsynaptic cell membrane. Diseases associated with this gene include Cycloplegia and early myoclonic encephalopathy.
