  • Function

    Functions as a calcium permeable cation channel. PKD1 and PKD2 may function through a common signaling pathway that is necessary for normal tubulogenesis.
  • Tissue specificity

    Strongly expressed in ovary, fetal and adult kidney, testis, and small intestine. Not detected in peripheral leukocytes.
  • Involvement in disease

    Defects in PKD2 are the cause of polycystic kidney disease autosomal dominant type 2 (ADPKD2) [MIM:613095]. ADPKD2 is a disorder characterized by progressive formation and enlargement of cysts in both kidneys, typically leading to end-stage renal disease in adult life. Cysts also occurs in the liver and other organs. It represents approximately 15% of the cases of autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease. ADPKD2 is clinically milder than ADPKD1 but it has a deleterious impact on overall life expectancy.
  • Sequence similarities

    Belongs to the polycystin family.
    Contains 1 EF-hand domain.
  • Domain

    The C-terminal coiled-coil domain binds calcium and undergoes a calcium-induced conformation change. It is implicated in oligomerization and the interaction with PKD1.
  • Cellular localization

    Membrane. Endoplasmic reticulum.
