Summaries for SCN8A Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for SCN8A Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the sodium channel alpha subunit gene family. The encoded protein forms the ion pore region of the voltage-gated sodium channel. This protein is essential for the rapid membrane depolarization that occurs during the formation of the action potential in excitable neurons. Mutations in this gene are associated with cognitive disability, pancerebellar atrophy and ataxia. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.[provided by RefSeq, May 2010]

CIViC summary for SCN8A Gene

GeneCards Summary for SCN8A Gene

SCN8A (Sodium Voltage-Gated Channel Alpha Subunit 8) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with SCN8A include Seizures, Benign Familial Infantile, 5 and Epileptic Encephalopathy, Early Infantile, 13. Among its related pathways are Cardiac conduction and L1CAM interactions. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include ion channel activity and voltage-gated sodium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is SCN2A.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SCN8A 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. In macrophages and melanoma cells, isoform 5 may participate in the control of podosome and invadopodia formation.

Tocris Summary for SCN8A Gene

  • Voltage-gated sodium channels (NaV) are responsible for action potential initiation and propagation in excitable cells, including nerve, muscle, and neuroendocrine cell types. They are also expressed at low levels in non-excitable cells, where their physiological role is unclear.
