KCNE2


Also found in: Wikipedia.

KCNE2

A gene on chromosome 21q22.12 that encodes a member of the voltage-gated, isk-related potassium channel subfamily; it is a small-membrane subunit, which assembles with the KCNH2 protein product, a pore-forming protein, and is expressed in heart and muscle.

Molecular pathology
KCNE2 mutations are associated with arrhythmias.

Writing about their findings in a paper, the researchers say that their work suggests that mutations of either of two gene products-proteins called KCNE2 and KCNQ1, which are already known to be involved in human cardiac arrhythmias-can also cause thyroid dysfunction.
Recognized more than a decade ago, KCNQ1 and KCNE2 are known to form potassium channels in cardiac muscle that help end each heartbeat in a timely fashion.
Inherited mutations in KCNQ1 and KCNE2 cause ventricular and atrial cardiac arrhythmias, previously presumed to be due entirely to the role of these proteins in cardiac muscle.
The FAMILION Postmortem Channelopathies Test includes targeted sequencing of 6 genes (KCNQ1, KCNH2, SCN5A, KCNE1, KCNE2, RYR2) and is performed in a CLIA-certified commercial laboratory that meets all applicable state and federal guidelines.
The remainder may have mutations in KCNE1 or KCNE2 encoding minx (8) and MiRP1 (4), respectively, or in the SCN5A gene encoding the SCN5A [Na.
The recent discovery of KCNE2 mutations among patients suffering from drug-induced, inherited, or sporadic arrhythmia (4) further corroborates the involvement of the HERG/MiRP1 ion channel in the susceptibility to arrhythmia.
