Cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 2
Neuronal acetylcholine receptor protein subunit alpha 2
Neuronal acetylcholine receptor subunit alpha-2
FunctionAfter binding acetylcholine, the AChR responds by an extensive change in conformation that affects all subunits and leads to opening of an ion-conducting channel across the plasma membrane.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in CHRNA2 are the cause of nocturnal frontal lobe epilepsy type 4 (ENFL4) [MIM:610353]. ENFL4 is an autosomal dominant epilepsy characterized by nocturnal seizures associated with fear sensation, tongue movements, and nocturnal wandering, closely resembling nightmares and sleep walking.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the ligand-gated ion channel (TC 1.A.9) family. Acetylcholine receptor (TC 1.A.9.1) subfamily. Alpha-2/CHRNA2 sub-subfamily.
