Literature associating SCN2A and familial periodic paralysis
Sodium channel, voltage-gated, type II, alpha subunit; Mediates the voltage-dependent sodium ion permeability of excitable membranes. Assuming opened or closed conformations in response to the voltage difference across the membrane, the protein forms a sodium-selective channel through which Na(+) ions may pass in accordance with their electrochemical gradient; Belongs to the sodium channel (TC 1.A.1.10) family. Nav1.2/SCN2A subfamily.
