ANK2

Description 
ankyrin 2, neuronal


This gene is composed of 46 exons and codes for a protein in the ankyrin family. Ankyrins link integral membrane proteins to the underlying spectrin-actin cytoskeleton. Due to their function, these proteins play a key role in cell motility, activation, proliferation, contact and maintenance of specialized membrane domains. Mutations in this gene cause LongQT syndrome (LQTS) and cardiac arrhythmia.
