Transient receptor potential channel mucolipin 2; Nonselective cation channel probably playing a role in the regulation of membrane trafficking events. Acts as Ca(2+)- permeable cation channel with inwardly rectifying activity. May activate ARF6 and be involved in the trafficking of GPI-anchored cargo proteins to the cell surface via the ARF6-regulated recycling pathway. May play a role in immune processes. In adaptive immunity, TRPML2 and TRPML1 may play redundant roles in the function of the specialized lysosomes of B cells (By similarity). In the innate immune response, may play a role in the regulation of chemokine secretion and macrophage migration (By similarity). Through a possible and probably tissue-specific heteromerization with MCOLN1 may be at least in part involved in many lysosome-dependent cellular events; Belongs to the transient receptor (TC 1.A.4) family. Polycystin subfamily. MCOLN2 sub-subfamily.
Synonyms: MCOLN2, MCOLN2p, hMCOLN2, G5EA24, Q8IZK6 ...
