This gene encodes a member of the polycystin protein family. The encoded protein contains 11 transmembrane domains, a latrophilin/CL-1-like GPCR proteolytic site (GPS) domain, and a polycystin-1, lipoxygenase, alpha-toxin (PLAT) domain. This protein may function as a component of cation channel pores. Two transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.

PKD1L2 has several biochemical functions, for example, calcium ion binding, carbohydrate binding. Some of the functions are cooperated with other proteins, some of the functions could acted by PKD1L2 itself. We selected most functions PKD1L2 had, and list some proteins which have the same functions with PKD1L2. You can find most of the proteins on our site.
