Description:
CHP2 (calcineurin like EF-hand protein 2) encodes for a small calcium-binding protein that regulates cell pH by controlling plasma membrane-type Na+/H+ exchange activity. PRKCB (protein kinase C beta) encodes a member of the family of serine- and threonine-specific protein kinases that can be activated by calcium and second messenger diacylglycerol. Both genes are involved in diverse cellular signaling pathways. Genetic variance in the CHP2-PRKCB intergenic region associated with acute chest syndrome (ACS) in patients with sickle cell disease. ACS is a form of acute lung injury caused by vaso-occlusion within the pulmonary microvasculature. Etiologies either trigger vaso-occlusion (e.g., infection, asthma, hypoventilation) or are a result of vaso-occlusion (e.g., bone marrow and fat emboli).
