Pannexin 2 is encoded by the gene PANX2. PANX2 is a member of the pannexin family. PANX2 combines with pannexin 1 to form cell type-specific gap junctions with distinct properties. PANX2 is expressed in the eye, thyroid, prostate, kidney, liver, and central nervous system. Diseases associated with PANX2 include Oculodentodigital Dysplasia and Chronic Closed-Angle Glaucoma.
