Summaries for GNG8 Gene

GeneCards Summary for GNG8 Gene

GNG8 (G Protein Subunit Gamma 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and Presynaptic function of Kainate receptors. GO annotations related to this gene include GTPase activity and signal transducer activity. An important paralog of this gene is GNG2.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GNG8 Gene

  • Guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins) are involved as a modulator or transducer in various transmembrane signaling systems. The beta and gamma chains are required for the GTPase activity, for replacement of GDP by GTP, and for G protein-effector interaction.

Tocris Summary for GNG8 Gene

  • 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'.
