Official Full Name
chloride channel, voltage-sensitive 1
The CLCN family of voltage-dependent chloride channel genes comprises nine members (CLCN1-7, Ka and Kb) which;demonstrate quite diverse functional characteristics while sharing significant sequence homology. The protein encoded;by this gene regulates the electric excitability of the skeletal muscle membrane. Mutations in this gene cause two;forms of inherited human muscle disorders: recessive generalized myotonia congenita (Becker) and dominant myotonia;(Thomsen). Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
