CLCN2 chloride voltage-gated channel 2

Also known as: CLC2; ECA2; ECA3; EGI3; EGMA; EJM6; EJM8; CIC-2; EGI11; LKPAT; clC-2


This gene encodes a voltage-gated chloride channel. The encoded protein is a transmembrane protein that maintains chloride ion homeostasis in various cells. Defects in this gene may be a cause of certain epilepsies. Four transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2012]
