PON2 is a member of the paraoxonase gene family,which includes three known members located adjacent to each otheron the long arm of chromosome 7. The encoded protein isubiquitously expressed in human tissues, membrane-bound, and mayact as a cellular antioxidant, protecting cells from oxidativestress. Hydrolytic activity against acylhomoserine lactones,important bacterial quorum-sensing mediators, suggests the encodedprotein may also play a role in defense responses to pathogenicbacteria. Mutations in this gene may be associated with vasculardisease and a number of quantitative phenotypes related todiabetes.
