KCND2(redirected from potassium voltage-gated channel Shal-related subfamily member 2)
KCND2A gene on chromosome 7q31 that encodes a member of the voltage-gated, shal-related subfamily of potassium channels, which form voltage-activated A-type ion channels and are involved in the repolarisation phase of action potentials. KCND2 mediates a rapidly inactivating, A-type outward potassium current.
