This gene is a member of the transient receptor family and the TrpV subfamily. The calcium-selective channel encoded by this gene has 6 transmembrane-spanning domains, multiple potential phosphorylation sites, an N-linked glycosylation site, and 5 ANK repeats. This protein forms homotetramers or heterotetramers and is activated by a low internal calcium level. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for TRPV5 Gene
TRPV5 (Transient Receptor Potential Cation Channel Subfamily V Member 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with TRPV5 include Hypervitaminosis D and Aromatase Deficiency. Among its related pathways are Osteoclast Signaling and Endocrine and other factor-regulated calcium reabsorption. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include calmodulin binding and calcium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is TRPV6.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRPV5 Gene
Constitutively active calcium selective cation channel thought to be involved in Ca(2+) reabsorption in kidney and intestine (PubMed:11549322, PubMed:18768590). Required for normal Ca(2+) reabsorption in the kidney distal convoluted tubules (By similarity). The channel is activated by low internal calcium level and the current exhibits an inward rectification (PubMed:11549322, PubMed:18768590). A Ca(2+)-dependent feedback regulation includes fast channel inactivation and slow current decay (By similarity). Heteromeric assembly with TRPV6 seems to modify channel properties. TRPV5-TRPV6 heteromultimeric concatemers exhibit voltage-dependent gating (By similarity).
Vanilloids are a group of compounds, structurally related to capsaicin, thought to exert their actions via vanilloid receptors. The vanilloid receptor family (TRPV) is a member of the transient receptor potential (TRP) superfamily of ion channels, and have six members (TRPV1-6).
