Potassium channel subfamily T, member 2, also known as KCNT2 is a human gene that encodes the K Ca4.2 protein. KCNT2, also known as the Slick channel (sequence like an intermediate potassium channel) is an outwardly rectifying potassium channel activated by internal raises in sodium or chloride ions.
