cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 2 subunit

Gene Summary

Enables acetylcholine-gated cation-selective channel activity and quaternary ammonium group binding activity. Contributes to heterocyclic compound binding activity. Involved in response to acetylcholine. Located in membrane. Part of protein-containing complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy 4. Orthologous to human CHRNA2 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 2 subunit). [provided by Alliance of Genome Resources, Apr 2022]
