Kv1.2 K+ channel (Potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily A member 2), which is encoded by KCNA2 gene, is part of the Potassium voltage-gated channel family. Kv1.2 K+ channel switches between its open and closed conformation in response to the voltage difference across the membrane, which selectively allows the traffic of K+. Kv1.2 K+ channel determines potassium ion permeability of excitable membranes according to their electrochemical gradient. Therefore, this protein has for function to regulate neurotransmitter release, neuronal excitability, smooth muscle contraction, heart muscle contraction or insulin secretion. Kv1.2 is recognized as a tansmembrane/ multi-pass membrane protein. Anti-Kv1.2 K+ channel K14/16 is often used in IHC on human normal cerebral cortex.
