Entrez Gene Summary for CACNG8 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a type I transmembrane AMPA receptor regulatory protein (TARP). TARPs regulate both trafficking and channel gating of the AMPA receptors. 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, a type II TARP and a calcium channel gamma subunit. The mRNA for this gene is believed to initiate translation from a non-AUG (CUG) start codon. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]

GeneCards Summary for CACNG8 Gene

CACNG8 (Calcium Channel, Voltage-Dependent, Gamma Subunit 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CACNG8 include arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy. Among its related pathways are MAPK signaling pathway and ERK Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include voltage-gated calcium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is CACNG2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CACNG8 Gene

  • Regulates the trafficking and gating properties of AMPA-selective glutamate receptors (AMPARs). Promotes their targeting to the cell membrane and synapses and modulates their gating properties by slowing their rates of activation, deactivation and desensitization and by mediating their resensitization. Does not show subunit-specific AMPA receptor regulation and regulates all AMPAR subunits. Thought to stabilize the calcium channel in an inactivated (closed) state.
