GeneCards Summary for GUCA1C Gene
GUCA1C (Guanylate Cyclase Activator 1C) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Metabolism of fat-soluble vitamins and Phototransduction. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and calcium sensitive guanylate cyclase activator activity. An important paralog of this gene is GUCA1A.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GUCA1C Gene
Stimulates guanylyl cyclase 1 (GC1) and GC2 when free calcium ions concentration is low and inhibits guanylyl cyclases when free calcium ions concentration is elevated. This Ca(2+)-sensitive regulation of guanylyl cyclase (GC) is a key event in recovery of the dark state of rod photoreceptors following light exposure.
