GeneCards Summary for GNA15 Gene
GNA15 (G Protein Subunit Alpha 15) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GNA15 include Pertussis and Dyschromatosis Universalis Hereditaria. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Sweet Taste Signaling. GO annotations related to this gene include GTP binding and signal transducer activity. An important paralog of this gene is GNAQ.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GNA15 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'.
