Actinin Alpha 2 (ACTN2)

[Edit]

Alpha-actinin skeletal muscle isoform 2; F-actin cross-linking protein

Actinin Alpha 2 (ACTN2)

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. Studies have also implicated alpha actinin in the binding of cardiac ion channels, Kv1.5 in particular.
