This gene encodes a regulatory beta subunit of the voltage-dependent calcium channel. Beta subunits are composed of five domains, which contribute to the regulation of surface expression and gating of calcium channels and may also play a role in the regulation of transcription factors and calcium transport.

GeneCards Summary for CACNB3 Gene
CACNB3 (Calcium Voltage-Gated Channel Auxiliary Subunit Beta 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism and Transmission across Chemical Synapses. GO annotations related to this gene include protein kinase binding and high voltage-gated calcium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is CACNB4.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CACNB3 Gene
The beta subunit of voltage-dependent calcium channels contributes to the function of the calcium channel by increasing peak calcium current, shifting the voltage dependencies of activation and inactivation, modulating G protein inhibition and controlling the alpha-1 subunit membrane targeting.
