Coming from the Greek ''piesi'' and meaning "pressure", PIEZO2 is integral to the membrane and is involved in ion channel activity, cation channel activity and the regulation of membrane potential. Having between 24 and 36 transmembrane domains, PIEZO's are big transmembrane proteins found in a variety of species. More specifically, PIEZO2 is required for rapidly adapting mechanically activated current in somatosensory and DRG neurons.
