TRPC7 (Transient Receptor Potential Cation Channel Subfamily C Member 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Transport of glucose and other sugars, bile salts and organic acids, metal ions and amine compounds and Effects of PIP2 hydrolysis. GO annotations related to this gene include binding and calcium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is TRPC3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRPC7 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) (By similarity). May also be activated by intracellular calcium store depletion.
