Summaries for CALN1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CALN1 Gene

  • This gene encodes a protein with high similarity to the calcium-binding proteins of the calmodulin family. The encoded protein contains two EF-hand domains and potential calcium-binding sites. Alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CALN1 Gene

CALN1 (Calneuron 1) is a Protein Coding gene. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding. An important paralog of this gene is CABP7.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CALN1 Gene

  • Negatively regulates Golgi-to-plasma membrane trafficking by interacting with PI4KB and inhibiting its activity (By similarity). May play a role in the physiology of neurons and is potentially important in memory and learning.
