Summaries for ANO7 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for ANO7 Gene

  • This prostate-specific gene encodes a cytoplasmic protein, as well as a polytopic membrane protein which may serve as a target in prostate cancer diagnosis and immunotherapy. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]

GeneCards Summary for ANO7 Gene

ANO7 (Anoctamin 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ANO7 include prostate cancer. Among its related pathways are Ion channel transport and Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds. GO annotations related to this gene include intracellular calcium activated chloride channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is ANO5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ANO7 Gene

  • Has calcium-dependent phospholipid scramblase activity; scrambles phosphatidylserine, phosphatidylcholine and galactosylceramide (By similarity). Does not exhibit calcium-activated chloride channel (CaCC) activity. May play a role in cell-cell interactions.

    • The term anoctamin was coined because these channels are anion selective and have eight (OCT) transmembrane segments. There is some dissatisfaction in the field with the Ano nomenclature because it is not certain that all the members of this family are anion channels or have the 8-transmembrane topology
