Vectors for Human ACTN2

Gene Information

  • Offical Gene Symbol ACTN2
  • Species Human ( Homo sapiens )
  • Offical Full Name actinin alpha 2
  • Other Aliases CMD1AA; CMH23
  • Other Desigations alpha-actinin-2; F-actin cross-linking protein; alpha-actinin skeletal muscle
  • Gene Type protein-coding
  • Summary
    Alpha actinins belong to the spectrin gene superfamily which represents a diverse group of cytoskeletal proteins, including the alpha and beta spectrins and dystrophins. Alpha actinin is an actin-binding protein with multiple roles in different cell types. In nonmuscle cells, the cytoskeletal isoform is found along microfilament bundles and adherens-type junctions, where it is involved in binding actin to the membrane. In contrast, skeletal, cardiac, and smooth muscle isoforms are localized to the Z-disc and analogous dense bodies, where they help anchor the myofibrillar actin filaments. This gene encodes a muscle-specific, alpha actinin isoform that is expressed in both skeletal and cardiac muscles. Several transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, May 2013]
