GeneCards Summary for GNA13 Gene
GNA13 (G Protein Subunit Alpha 13) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are CCR5 Pathway in Macrophages and Vascular smooth muscle contraction. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and signal transducer activity. An important paralog of this gene is GNA12.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GNA13 Gene
Guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins) are involved as modulators or transducers in various transmembrane signaling systems.
Heterotrimeric G proteins are membrane bound GTPases that are linked to 7-TM receptors. Each G protein contains an alpha-, beta- and gamma-subunit and is bound to GDP in the 'off' state. Ligand binding causes a receptor conformational change, detaching the G protein and switching it 'on'.
