Previous Symbols for EFHC1 Gene
This gene encodes an EF-hand-containing calcium binding protein. The encoded protein likely plays a role in calcium homeostasis. Mutations in this gene have been associated with susceptibility to juvenile myoclonic epilepsy and juvenile absence epilepsy. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described.

GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and protein C-terminus binding. An important paralog of this gene is EFHC2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for EFHC1 Gene
Necessary for radial and tangential cell migration during brain development, possibly acting as a regulator of cell morphology and process formation during migration (PubMed:22926142). May enhance calcium influx through CACNA1E and stimulate programmed cell death (PubMed:15258581).
