Summaries for CACNA1E Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CACNA1E Gene

  • Voltage-dependent calcium channels are multisubunit complexes consisting of alpha-1, alpha-2, beta, and delta subunits in a 1:1:1:1 ratio. These channels mediate the entry of calcium ions into excitable cells, and are also involved in a variety of calcium-dependent processes, including muscle contraction, hormone or neurotransmitter release, gene expression, cell motility, cell division and cell death. This gene encodes the alpha-1E subunit of the R-type calcium channels, which belong to the 'high-voltage activated' group that maybe involved in the modulation of firing patterns of neurons important for information processing. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been described for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2011]

GeneCards Summary for CACNA1E Gene

CACNA1E (Calcium Channel, Voltage-Dependent, R Type, Alpha 1E Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CACNA1E include migraine. Among its related pathways are MAPK signaling pathway and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and voltage-gated calcium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is CACNA1A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CACNA1E Gene

  • Voltage-sensitive calcium channels (VSCC) mediate the entry of calcium ions into excitable cells and are also involved in a variety of calcium-dependent processes, including muscle contraction, hormone or neurotransmitter release, gene expression, cell motility, cell division and cell death. The isoform alpha-1E gives rise to R-type calcium currents. R-type calcium channels belong to the high-voltage activated (HVA) group and are blocked by nickel, and partially by omega-agatoxin-IIIA (omega-Aga-IIIA). They are however insensitive to dihydropyridines (DHP), omega-conotoxin-GVIA (omega-CTx-GVIA), and omega-agatoxin-IVA (omega-Aga-IVA). Calcium channels containing alpha-1E subunit could be involved in the modulation of firing patterns of neurons which is important for information processing

Tocris Summary for CACNA1E Gene

  • Voltage-gated calcium channels (CaV) are present in the membrane of most excitable cells and mediate calcium influx in response to depolarisation. They regulate intracellular processes such as contraction, secretion, neurotransmission and gene expression. Voltage-gated calcium channels are formed from four or five distinct subunits; the alpha-subunit is the largest subunit and incorporates the voltage sensor, conduction pore and gating apparatus. Using pharmacological and electrophysiological techniques, at least 6 types of voltage-gated channels have been identified: L, N, P, Q, R and T, which are grouped into three families. Cav1.x are high-voltage-activated dihydropyridine-sensitive (L-type), Cav2.x are high-voltage-activated dihydropyridine-insensitive (N-, P- Q- and R-types) and Cav3.x are low-voltage-activated channels (T-type).

    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts with EFHC1. Voltage-dependent calcium channels are multisubunit complexes, consisting of alpha-1, alpha-2, beta and delta subunits in a 1:1:1:1 ratio. The channel activity is directed by the pore-forming and voltage-sensitive alpha-1 subunit. In many cases, this subunit is sufficient to generate voltage-sensitive calcium channel activity. The auxiliary subunits beta and alpha-2/delta linked by a disulfide bridge regulate the channel activity.
