Summaries for PLCH1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for PLCH1 Gene

  • PLCH1 is a member of the PLC-eta family of the phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C (PLC) superfamily of enzymes that cleave phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PtdIns(4,5)P2) to generate second messengers inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) and diacylglycerol (DAG) (Hwang et al., 2005 [PubMed 15702972]).[supplied by OMIM, Jun 2009]

GeneCards Summary for PLCH1 Gene

PLCH1 (Phospholipase C Eta 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Proton Pump Inhibitor Pathway, Pharmacodynamics and Inositol phosphate metabolism (REACTOME). GO annotations related to this gene include calcium ion binding and phosphoric diester hydrolase activity. An important paralog of this gene is PLCB3.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for PLCH1 Gene

  • The production of the second messenger molecules diacylglycerol (DAG) and inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) is mediated by calcium-activated phosphatidylinositol-specific phospholipase C enzymes.

Tocris Summary for PLCH1 Gene

  • Phospholipases are a group of enzymes that hydrolyze phospholipids into fatty acids and other lipophilic molecules. There are four major classes; phospholipase A, phospholipase B, phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C and phospholipase D.
