Summaries for CALY Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CALY Gene

  • The protein encoded by this gene is a type II single transmembrane protein. It is required for maximal stimulated calcium release after stimulation of purinergic or muscarinic but not beta-adrenergic receptors. The encoded protein interacts with D1 dopamine receptor and may interact with other DA receptor subtypes and/or GPCRs. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

GeneCards Summary for CALY Gene

CALY (Calcyon Neuron Specific Vesicular Protein) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CALY include Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder and Schizophrenia. Among its related pathways are Circadian entrainment. GO annotations related to this gene include protein complex binding and clathrin light chain binding. An important paralog of this gene is NSG1.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CALY Gene

  • Interacts with clathrin light chain A and stimulates clathrin self-assembly and clathrin-mediated endocytosis.
