ChaK2 Essential ion channel and serine/threonine-protein kinase. Crucial for magnesium homeostasis. Has an important role in epithelial magnesium transport and in the active magnesium absorption in the gut and kidney. Isoforms of the type M6-kinase lack the ion channel region. In the N-terminal section; belongs to the transient receptor (TC 1.A.4) family. LTrpC subfamily. TRPM6 sub-subfamily. Highly expressed in kidney and colon. Isoform TRPM6a and isoform TRPM6b, are coexpressed with TRPM7 in kidney, and testis, and are also found in several cell lines of lung origin. Isoform TRPM6c is detected only in testis and in NCI-H510A small cell lung carcinoma cells. 7 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported.
