CACNB2 (Calcium Channel Voltage-dependent beta 2 Subunit, CAB2, CACNLB2, CAVB2, FLJ23743, Lambert-Eaton Myasthenic Syndrome Antigen B, Myasthenic (Lambert-Eaton) Syndrome Antigen B, MYSB, Voltage-dependent L-type Calcium Channel Subunit beta 2)
There are a few main classifications of gated ion channels. There are voltage- gated ion channels, ligand-gated, other gating systems and finally those that are classified differently, having more exotic characteristics. The first are voltage- gated ion channels which open and close in response to membrane potential. These are then separated into sodium, calcium, potassium, proton, transient receptor, and cyclic nucleotide-gated channels; each of which is responsible for a unique role. Ligand-gated ion channels are also known as ionotropic receptors, and they open in response to specific ligand molecules binding to the extracellular domain of the receptor protein. The other gated classifications include activation and inactivation by second messengers, inward-rectifier potassium channels, calcium-activated potassium channels, two-pore-domain potassium channels, light-gated channels, mechano-sensitive ion channels and cyclic nucleotide-gated channels. Finally, the other classifications are based on less normal characteristics such as two-pore channels, and transient receptor potential channels.
Cav Beat subunits are involved in the transport of the pore forming alpha1 subunit to the plasma membrane.
