Aliases for TRPC5 Gene
External Ids for TRPC5 Gene
This gene belongs to the transient receptor family. It encodes one of the seven mammalian TRPC (transient receptor potential channel) proteins. The encoded protein is a multi-pass membrane protein and is thought to form a receptor-activated non-selective calcium permeant cation channel. The protein is active alone or as a heteromultimeric assembly with TRPC1, TRPC3, and TRPC4. It also interacts with multiple proteins including calmodulin, CABP1, enkurin, Na(+)-H+ exchange regulatory factor (NHERF ), interferon-induced GTP-binding protein (MX1), ring finger protein 24 (RNF24), and SEC14 domain and spectrin repeat-containing protein 1 (SESTD1).

GeneCards Summary for TRPC5 Gene
TRPC5 (Transient Receptor Potential Cation Channel, Subfamily C, Member 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are L1CAM interactions and GPCR Pathway. GO annotations related to this gene include calcium channel activity and inositol 1,4,5 trisphosphate binding. An important paralog of this gene is TRPC6.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRPC5 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. Has also been shown to be calcium-selective (By similarity). May also be activated by intracellular calcium store depletion.
