Summaries for TRPC4 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TRPC4 Gene

  • This gene encodes a member of the canonical subfamily of transient receptor potential cation channels. The encoded protein forms a non-selective calcium-permeable cation channel that is activated by Gq-coupled receptors and tyrosine kinases, and plays a role in multiple processes including endothelial permeability, vasodilation, neurotransmitter release and cell proliferation. Single nucleotide polymorphisms in this gene may be associated with generalized epilepsy with photosensitivity. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed for this gene. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2011]

GeneCards Summary for TRPC4 Gene

TRPC4 (Transient Receptor Potential Cation Channel Subfamily C Member 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TRPC4 include photosensitive epilepsy. Among its related pathways are Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds and Developmental Biology. GO annotations related to this gene include ion channel activity and calcium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is TRPC6.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRPC4 Gene

  • Form a receptor-activated non-selective calcium permeant cation channel. Acts as a cell-cell contact-dependent endothelial calcium entry channel. Probably operated by a phosphatidylinositol second messenger system activated by receptor tyrosine kinases or G-protein coupled receptors. Mediates cation entry, with an enhanced permeability to barium over calcium. May also be activated by intracellular calcium store depletion.

Tocris Summary for TRPC4 Gene

  • The classical or canonical transient receptor potential (TRPC) channels are the subfamily most closely related to the founding member of the TRP family, the Drosophila TRP channel. TRPC channels have seven TRPC genes that encode the channel protein (TRPC1-7).

    Size:
    977 amino acids
    Molecular mass:
    112101 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Interacts with TRPC4AP (By similarity). Homotetramer and heterotetramer with TRPC1 and/or TRPC5. Isoform alpha but not isoform beta associates with inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate receptor (ITPR). Interacts with (via PDZ-binding domain) with SLC9A3R1/NHERF. Interacts with MX1 and RNF24. Interacts (via CIRB domain) with SESTD1 (via spectrin 1 repeat). Interacts with CDH5 and CTNNB1. Interacts with SPTAN1 (via C-terminal spectrin repeats) and SPTBN5 (via C-terminus). Interacts (via protein 4.1-binding domain) with EPB41L2.
    Miscellaneous:
    • The cell membrane presentation, the calcium entry function and the interaction with junctional proteins (CTNNB1 and CDH5) are controlled by endothelial cell-cell contacts.
    • The interaction with spectrin is important in controlling the translocation of TRPC4 channels to the plasma membrane following EGF stimulation.
