Summaries for CACNG6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CACNG6 Gene

  • Voltage-dependent calcium channels are composed of five subunits. The protein encoded by this gene represents one of these subunits, gamma, and is one of two known gamma subunit proteins. This particular gamma subunit is an integral membrane protein that is thought to stabilize the calcium channel in an inactive (closed) state. This gene is part of a functionally diverse eight-member protein subfamily of the PMP-22/EMP/MP20 family and is located in a cluster with two family members that function as transmembrane AMPA receptor regulatory proteins (TARPs). Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. Variants in this gene have been associated with aspirin-intolerant asthma. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]

GeneCards Summary for CACNG6 Gene

CACNG6 (Calcium Voltage-Gated Channel Auxiliary Subunit Gamma 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are G-Beta Gamma Signaling and TCR Signaling (Qiagen). GO annotations related to this gene include calcium channel activity and voltage-gated ion channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is CACNG1.
