Summaries for NALCN Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for NALCN Gene

  • This gene encodes a voltage-independent, nonselective cation channel which belongs to a family of voltage-gated sodium and calcium channels that regulates the resting membrane potential and excitability of neurons. This family is expressed throughout the nervous system and conducts a persistent sodium leak current that contributes to tonic neuronal excitability. The encoded protein forms a channelosome complex that includes G-protein-coupled receptors, UNC-79, UNC-80, NCA localization factor-1, and src family tyrosine kinases. Naturally occurring mutations in this gene are associated with infantile neuroaxonal dystrophy, infantile hypotonia with psychomotor retardation and characteristic facies (IHPRF) syndrome, and congenital contractures of the limbs and face with hypotonia and developmental delay (CLIFAHDD) syndrome. A knockout of the orthologous gene in mice results in paralysis with a severely disrupted respiratory rhythm, and lethality within 24 hours after birth. [provided by RefSeq, Apr 2017]

GeneCards Summary for NALCN Gene

NALCN (Sodium Leak Channel, Non-Selective) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with NALCN include Congenital Contractures Of The Limbs And Face, Hypotonia, And Developmental Delay and Hypotonia, Infantile, With Psychomotor Retardation And Characteristic Facies 1. Among its related pathways are Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds and Ion channel transport. GO annotations related to this gene include ion channel activity and sodium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is CACNA1F.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for NALCN Gene

  • Voltage-independent, cation-nonselective channel which is permeable to sodium, potassium and calcium ions. Regulates the resting membrane potential and controls neuronal excitability (PubMed:17448995). Neuropeptides such as neurotensin and substance P (SP) stimulate the firing of action potentials by activating NALCN through a SRC family kinases-dependent pathway. In addition to its baseline activity, NALCN activity is enhanced/modulated by several GPCRs. Required for normal respiratory rhythm and neonatal survival. Involved in systemic osmoregulation by controlling the serum sodium concentration. NALCN is partly responsible for the substance P-induced depolarization and regulation of the intestinal pace-making activity in the interstitial cells of Cajal. Plays a critical role in both maintenance of spontaneous firing of substantia nigra pars reticulata (SNr) neurons and physiological modulation of SNr neuron excitability (By similarity).

  • Each of the four internal repeats contains five hydrophobic transmembrane segments (S1, S2, S3, S5, S6) and one positively charged transmembrane segment (S4). S4 segments probably represent the voltage-sensor. S4 transmembrane segments lack some of the charged residues (K and R) found at every third position in the S4s of the NaV, CaV, and KV channels. Pore-forming loops (P loops) between S5 and S6 of each domain form an EEKE sodium- ion selectivity filter a mixture between the EEEE found in the CaVs and the DEKA of NaVs.
  • Belongs to the cation-nonselective channel family.
