GeneCards Summary for SCNN1D Gene
SCNN1D (Sodium Channel Epithelial 1 Delta Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are G-Beta Gamma Signaling and Ion channel transport. GO annotations related to this gene include sodium channel activity and ligand-gated sodium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is SCNN1A.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for SCNN1D Gene
Sodium permeable non-voltage-sensitive ion channel inhibited by the diuretic amiloride. Mediates the electrodiffusion of the luminal sodium (and water, which follows osmotically) through the apical membrane of epithelial cells. Controls the reabsorption of sodium in kidney, colon, lung and sweat glands. Also plays a role in taste perception.
Epithelial sodium channels (ENaCs) are members of the ENaC/Deg (epithelial amiloride-sensitive Na+ channel and degenerin) family of ion channels. They are highly selective Na+ channels that are localized to polarized epithelial cells. ENaCs are responsible for Na+ reabsorption in the distal kidney tubule, and transport of Na+ across the epithelium.
