Summaries for TRPC6 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for TRPC6 Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene forms a receptor-activated calcium channel in the cell membrane. The channel is activated by diacylglycerol and is thought to be under the control of a phosphatidylinositol second messenger system. Activation of this channel occurs independently of protein kinase C and is not triggered by low levels of intracellular calcium. Defects in this gene are a cause of focal segmental glomerulosclerosis 2 (FSGS2). [provided by RefSeq, Mar 2009]

GeneCards Summary for TRPC6 Gene

TRPC6 (Transient Receptor Potential Cation Channel, Subfamily C, Member 6) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TRPC6 include glomerulosclerosis, focal segmental, 2 and familial idiopathic steroid-resistant nephrotic syndrome with focal segmental hyalinosis. Among its related pathways are Signaling by GPCR and L1CAM interactions. GO annotations related to this gene include store-operated calcium channel activity and inositol 1,4,5 trisphosphate binding. An important paralog of this gene is TRPC5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRPC6 Gene

  • Thought to form a receptor-activated non-selective calcium permeant cation channel. Probably is operated by a phosphatidylinositol second messenger system activated by receptor tyrosine kinases or G-protein coupled receptors. Activated by diacylglycerol (DAG) in a membrane-delimited fashion, independently of protein kinase C. Seems not to be activated by intracellular calcium store depletion

  • Focal segmental glomerulosclerosis 2 (FSGS2) [MIM:603965]: A renal pathology defined by the presence of segmental sclerosis in glomeruli and resulting in proteinuria, reduced glomerular filtration rate and progressive decline in renal function. Renal insufficiency often progresses to end-stage renal disease, a highly morbid state requiring either dialysis therapy or kidney transplantation. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:15879175, ECO:0000269 PubMed:15924139, ECO:0000269 PubMed:21734084}.
