Common Name:NCKX2
HGNC Symbol:SLC24A2
HGNC Description:solute carrier family 24 (sodium/potassium/calcium exchanger), member 2
HGNC ID:10976
Chromosome:Chr.9(-): 19507450-19789059 GRCh37
OMIM Phenotype:None
Nucleotide RefSeq:NM_020344
Protein RefSeq:NP_065077
Evidence:Substrate In Vitro Evidence: The rat ortholog of NCKX2 has been functionally characterized using X. laevis oocytes, and was found to be a potassium-dependent sodium/calcium exchanger (Dong H, Light PE, French RJ, Lytton J. Electrophysiological characterization and ionic stoichiometry of the rat brain K+-dependent Na+/Ca2+ exchanger, NCKX2. J Biol Chem 276:25919-25928, 2001). Substrate In Vivo Evidence: In 166 patients with retinal disease, 14 novel sequence variants were identified in the NCKX2 gene. Three of these led to missense changes (amino acid substitutions) that are unlikely to be pathogenic (Sharon D, Yamamoto H, McGee TL, Rabe V, Szerencsei RT, Winkfein RJ, Prinsen CFM, Barnes CS, Andreasson S, Fishman GA, Schnetkamp PPM, Berson EL, Dryja TP. Mutated alleles of the rod and cone Na/Ca+K exchanger genes in patients with retinal diseases. Invest Ophthalmol Vis Sci 43:1971-1979, 2002). Tissue Distribution Evidence: In rats, NCKX mRNA was highly expressed in all brain regions examined (cerebral cortex, cerebellum, midbrain, and brainstem), moderately in eye, and weakly in heart, aorta, small intestine, large intestine, and lung (Tsoi M, Rhee K-H, Bungard D, Li XB, Lee S-L, Auer RN, Lytton J. Molecular cloning of a novel potassium-dependent sodium-calcium exchanger from rat brain. J Biol Chem 273:4155-4162, 1998).

GTEx Expression by Gene and Transcript

The heat map summarizes relative expression by tissue type at two levels of tissue detail, e.g., 'Brain' and 'Brain - Amygdala'. Choose among four calculated expression values, including mean and median RPKM values, and quantile normalized (QN) distributions of these values. (Note that differences between some distributions are subtle.) The coloring is relative to the mean of all displayed values. All values are log base 2. (See also PMT GTEx Expression Plotting.) Click on a transcript or tissue to resort the data.
