Summaries for SCN7A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SCN7A Gene

  • This gene encodes one of the many voltage-gated sodium channel proteins. For proper functioning of neurons and muscles during action potentials, voltage-gated sodium channels direct sodium ion diffusion for membrane depolarization. This sodium channel protein has some atypical characteristics; the similarity between the human and mouse proteins is lower compared to other orthologous sodium channel pairs. Also, the S4 segments, which sense voltage changes, have fewer positive charged residues that in other sodium channels; domain 4 has fewer arginine and lysine residues compared to other sodium channel proteins. Several alternatively spliced transcript variants exist, but the full-length natures of all of them remain unknown. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2011]

GeneCards Summary for SCN7A Gene

SCN7A (Sodium Voltage-Gated Channel Alpha Subunit 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SCN7A include normokalemic periodic paralysis and hypokalemic periodic paralysis, type 2. Among its related pathways are Cardiac conduction and Developmental Biology. GO annotations related to this gene include ion channel activity and sodium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is CACNA1G.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SCN7A Gene

  • Mediates the voltage-dependent sodium ion permeability of excitable membranes. Assuming opened or closed conformations in response to the voltage difference across the membrane, the protein forms a sodium-selective channel through which Na(+) ions may pass in accordance with their electrochemical gradient.
