Summaries for GJA10 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GJA10 Gene

  • Connexins, such as GJA10, are involved in the formation of gap junctions, intercellular conduits that directly connect the cytoplasms of contacting cells. Each gap junction channel is formed by docking of 2 hemichannels, each of which contains 6 connexin subunits (Sohl et al., 2003 [PubMed 12881038]).[supplied by OMIM, Mar 2008]

GeneCards Summary for GJA10 Gene

GJA10 (Gap Junction Protein Alpha 10) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Transmission across Chemical Synapses and Vesicle-mediated transport. GO annotations related to this gene include gap junction channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is GJC2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GJA10 Gene

  • One gap junction consists of a cluster of closely packed pairs of transmembrane channels, the connexons, through which materials of low MW diffuse from one cell to a neighboring cell. Involved in tracer coupling between horizontal cells of the retina. May play a role in the regulation of horizontal cell patterning (By similarity).

Tocris Summary for GJA10 Gene

  • Gap channels (gap junctions) are specialized cell-cell contacts that provide direct intracellular communication. They allow passive diffusion of molecules up to 1 kDa, including nutrients, metabolites (glucose), ions (K+, Ca2+) and second messengers (IP3, cAMP).
