Summaries for GNGT2 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for GNGT2 Gene

  • Phototransduction in rod and cone photoreceptors is regulated by groups of signaling proteins. The encoded protein is thought to play a crucial role in cone phototransduction. It belongs to the G protein gamma family and localized specifically in cones. Several transcript variants encoding the same protein have been found for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Nov 2010]

GeneCards Summary for GNGT2 Gene

GNGT2 (G Protein Subunit Gamma Transducin 2) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Thromboxane signalling through TP receptor and Inwardly rectifying K+ channels. GO annotations related to this gene include GTPase activity and signal transducer activity. An important paralog of this gene is GNGT1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GNGT2 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 GNGT2 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'.
