Previous Symbols for TRPV5 Gene
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 aromatase deficiency and hypervitaminosis d. Among its related pathways are CREB Pathway and Ion channel transport. GO annotations related to this gene include calmodulin binding and calcium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is TRPV2.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRPV5 Gene
Constitutively active calcium selective cation channel thought to be involved in Ca(2+) reabsorption in kidney and intestine. The channel is activated by low internal calcium level and the current exhibits an inward rectification. A Ca(2+)-dependent feedback regulation includes fast channel inactivation and slow current decay. 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 subgroup of the transient receptor potential (TRP) superfamily of ion channels, and six members (TRPV1-6) have so far been identified. The six vanilloid receptor members have been divided into four groups on the basis of structure and function: TRPV1/2, TRPV3, TRPV4 and TRPV5/6. TRPV1-4 are thermosensitive, non-selective cation channels that exist as tetrameric complexes. They are activated by a range of stimuli including heat, protons, lipids and changes in osmolarity or pressure. TRPV5-6 are calcium selective channels that are involved in the absorption and reabsorption of calcium across intestinal and renal epithelia. It has been proposed that cannabinoids are endogenous ligands for vanilloid receptors. Furthermore, adenosine has been shown to be an endogenous TRPV1 ligand and TRPV4 is activated by anandamide and arachidonic acid.
