GeneCards Summary for GUCA1C Gene
GUCA1C (Guanylate Cyclase Activator 1C) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Phototransduction and Visual Cycle in Retinal Rods. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and calcium sensitive guanylate cyclase activator activity. An important paralog of this gene is KCNIP3.
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.
