Sodium channel protein brain II subunit alpha
Sodium channel protein type 2 subunit alpha
Sodium channel protein type II subunit alpha
Sodium channel protein, brain II subunit alpha
Voltage gated sodium channel subunit alpha Nav1.2
Voltage-gated sodium channel subunit alpha Nav1.2
FunctionMediates the voltage-dependent sodium ion permeability of excitable membranes. Assuming opened or closed conformations in response to the voltage difference across the membrane, the protein forms a sodium-selective channel through which Na(+) ions may pass in accordance with their electrochemical gradient.
Involvement in diseaseDefects in SCN2A are a cause of generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus (GEFS+) [MIM:604233]. Generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures-plus refers to a rare autosomal dominant, familial condition with incomplete penetrance and large intrafamilial variability. Patients display febrile seizures persisting sometimes beyond the age of 6 years and/or a variety of afebrile seizure types. GEFS+ is a disease combining febrile seizures, generalized seizures often precipitated by fever at age 6 years or more, and partial seizures, with a variable degree of severity. Defects in SCN2A are the cause of benign familial infantile convulsions type 3 (BFIC3) [MIM:607745]. BFIC3 is an autosomal dominant disorder in which afebrile seizures occur in clusters during the first year of life, without neurologic sequelae. Defects in SCN2A are the cause of epileptic encephalopathy early infantile type 11 (EIEE11) [MIM:613721]. EIEE11 is an autosomal dominant seizure disorder characterized by infantile onset of refractory seizures with resultant delayed neurologic development and persistent neurologic abnormalities.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the sodium channel (TC 1.A.1.10) family. Nav1.2/SCN2A subfamily. Contains 1 IQ domain.
DomainThe sequence contains 4 internal repeats, each with 5 hydrophobic segments (S1,S2,S3,S5,S6) and one positively charged segment (S4). Segments S4 are probably the voltage-sensors and are characterized by a series of positively charged amino acids at every third position.
Post-translational modificationsMay be ubiquitinated by NEDD4L; which would promote its endocytosis.
