Summaries for CACNA1I Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CACNA1I Gene

  • This gene encodes the pore-forming alpha subunit of a voltage gated calcium channel. The encoded protein is a member of a subfamily of calcium channels referred to as is a low voltage-activated, T-type, calcium channel. The channel encoded by this protein is characterized by a slower activation and inactivation compared to other T-type calcium channels. This protein may be involved in calcium signaling in neurons. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Oct 2011]

GeneCards Summary for CACNA1I Gene

CACNA1I (Calcium Voltage-Gated Channel Subunit Alpha1 I) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CACNA1I include Childhood Absence Epilepsy. Among its related pathways are G-Beta Gamma Signaling and TCR Signaling (Qiagen). GO annotations related to this gene include ion channel activity and low voltage-gated calcium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is CACNA1G.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CACNA1I 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. Isoform alpha-1I gives rise to T-type calcium currents. T-type calcium channels belong to the "low-voltage activated (LVA)" group and are strongly blocked by nickel and mibefradil. A particularity of this type of channels is an opening at quite negative potentials, and a voltage-dependent inactivation. T-type channels serve pacemaking functions in both central neurons and cardiac nodal cells and support calcium signaling in secretory cells and vascular smooth muscle. They may also be involved in the modulation of firing patterns of neurons which is important for information processing as well as in cell growth processes. Gates in voltage ranges similar to, but higher than alpha 1G or alpha 1H (By similarity).

Tocris Summary for CACNA1I Gene

  • Voltage-gated calcium channels (CaV) are present in the membrane of most excitable cells and mediate calcium influx in response to depolarization. They regulate intracellular processes such as contraction, secretion, neurotransmission and gene expression.
