MPP2 Postsynaptic MAGUK scaffold protein that links CADM1 cell adhesion molecules to core components of the postsynaptic density. In CA1 pyramidal neurons, required for synaptic KCNN2-containing channel function and long-term potentiation expression. Seems to negatively regulate SRC function in epithelial cells. Belongs to the MAGUK family. 6 alternatively spliced human isoforms have been reported. Note: This description may include information from UniProtKB.
