Previous Symbols for ASIC5 Gene
This gene belongs to the amiloride-sensitive Na+ channel and degenerin (NaC/DEG) family, members of which have been identified in many animal species ranging from the nematode to human. The amiloride-sensitive Na(+) channel encoded by this gene is primarily expressed in the small intestine, however, its exact function is not known. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for ASIC5 Gene
ASIC5 (Acid Sensing (Proton Gated) Ion Channel Family Member 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with ASIC5 include hypoaldosteronism. 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 ligand-gated sodium channel activity and hydrogen ion channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is SCNN1G.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for ASIC5 Gene
Cation channel that gives rise to very low constitutive currents in the absence of activation. The activated channel exhibits selectivity for sodium, and is inhibited by amiloride.
