Torsin family 2, member A
Salusin-alpha, Salusin-beta, TOR2A, Torsin-related protein of
This gene encodes a member of the AAA family of adenosine triphosphatases with similarity to Clp proteases and heat shock proteins. Alternative splicing at this locus results in the translation of multiple isoforms of the encoded protein, some of which contain salusin peptides in the C-terminal region. These peptides may play roles in hypotension, myocardial growth and the induction of mitogenesis, and may also be involved in the pathogenesis of atherosclerosis. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2011] (from

We examined the distribution of salusin alpha (sal-α) and salusin beta (sal-β) immunoreactivity in heart and aortic tissues and measured circulating salusin concentrations, glucose, insulin, triglycerides, free fatty acids, uric acid, and total cholesterol in Sprague-Dawley rats with and without MetS.
This study was undertaken to ascertain whether human milk contains preptin, salusin-alpha (salusin-α) and -beta (salusin-β) and pro-hepcidin and hepcidin-25, and whether there are relationships between plasma and milk preptin, salusin-α and -β and pro-hepcidin and hepcidin-25 concentrations in lactating mothers with and without gestational diabetes mellitus (GDM).
the identification and characterization of two related peptides of 28 and 20 amino acids, which we designated salusin-alpha and salusin-beta. Salusins are translated from an alternatively spliced mRNA of TOR2A
