GeneID: 200


Common Name: MAGI2 Type: Gene
Chromosome: 7 (NC_000007.14) Locus: NG_011487.1 (MAGI2)
HUGO Symbol: MAGI2 Full Name: membrane associated guanylate kinase, WW and PDZ domain containing 2
Exons: 22 Introns: 21

MAGI2 has structural similarity to members of the membrane-associated guanylate kinase (MAGUK) family, which contain multiple PDZ domains and function as protein-protein interaction modules. The encoded protein functions as a scaffold for the assembly of multiprotein signaling complexes and is essential for development and maintenance of synapses, including receptor endocytosis and postendocytotic trafficking. MAGI2-dependent endocytosis is also essential for ciliogenesis. Polymorphisms in this gene associated with coeliac disease and ulcerative colitis, possibly through tight junction-mediated barrier defects. One polymorphism was also associated with HbF levels in individuals with sickle cell disease.
