ATP2B2(redirected from PMCA2a)
ATP2B2(1) A gene on chromosome 3p25.3 that encodes an enzyme belonging to the family of P-type primary ion transport ATPases, which form an aspartyl phosphate intermediate during the reaction cycle. These ATPases remove bivalent calcium ions from eukaryotic cells against large concentration gradients and play a central role in intracellular calcium homeostasis.
