FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes a member of the polycystin protein family. The encoded protein is a multi-pass membrane protein that functions as a calcium permeable cation channel, and is involved in calcium transport and calcium signaling in renal epithelial cells. This protein interacts with polycystin 1, and they may be partners in a common signaling cascade involved in tubular morphogenesis. Mutations in this gene are associated with autosomal dominant polycystic kidney disease type 2. [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2011]
PHENOTYPE: Homozygotes for targeted null mutations exhibit defects in cardiac septation, kidney and pancreatic cysts, impaired left-right axis determination, and late-gestation lethality. Heterozygotes show kidney and liver lesions and have reduced longevity. [provided by MGI curators]
