Summaries for CACNA1F Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CACNA1F Gene

  • This gene encodes a multipass transmembrane protein that functions as an alpha-1 subunit of the voltage-dependent calcium channel, which mediates the influx of calcium ions into the cell. The encoded protein forms a complex of alpha-1, alpha-2/delta, beta, and gamma subunits in a 1:1:1:1 ratio. Mutations in this gene can cause X-linked eye disorders, including congenital stationary night blindness type 2A, cone-rod dystropy, and Aland Island eye disease. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding multiple isoforms have been observed. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]

GeneCards Summary for CACNA1F Gene

CACNA1F (Calcium Channel, Voltage-Dependent, L Type, Alpha 1F Subunit) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CACNA1F include aland island eye disease and night blindness, congenital stationary , 2a, x-linked. Among its related pathways are MAPK signaling pathway and Apoptotic Pathways in Synovial Fibroblasts. GO annotations related to this gene include ion channel activity and high voltage-gated calcium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is CACNA1D.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CACNA1F Gene

  • Voltage-sensitive calcium channels (VSCC) mediate the entry of calcium ions into excitable cells and are also involved in a variety of calcium-dependent processes, including muscle contraction, hormone or neurotransmitter release, gene expression, cell motility, cell division and cell death. The isoform alpha-1F gives rise to L-type calcium currents. Long-lasting (L-type) calcium channels belong to the high-voltage activated (HVA) group. They are blocked by dihydropyridines (DHP), phenylalkylamines, benzothiazepines, and by omega-agatoxin-IIIA (omega-Aga-IIIA). They are however insensitive to omega-conotoxin-GVIA (omega-CTx-GVIA) and omega-agatoxin-IVA (omega-Aga-IVA)

Tocris Summary for CACNA1F Gene

  • Voltage-gated calcium channels (CaV) are present in the membrane of most excitable cells and mediate calcium influx in response to depolarization. They regulate intracellular processes such as contraction, secretion, neurotransmission and gene expression.

    Molecular mass:
    220678 Da
    Quaternary structure:
    • Voltage-dependent calcium channels are multisubunit complexes, consisting of alpha-1, alpha-2, beta and delta subunits in a 1:1:1:1 ratio. The channel activity is directed by the pore-forming and voltage-sensitive alpha-1 subunit. In many cases, this subunit is sufficient to generate voltage-sensitive calcium channel activity. The auxiliary subunits beta and alpha-2/delta linked by a disulfide bridge regulate the channel activity. Interacts (via IQ domain) with CABP4; in a calcium independent manner (By similarity).

  • Aaland island eye disease (AIED) [MIM:300600]: A retinal disease characterized by a combination of fundus hypopigmentation, decreased visual acuity due to foveal hypoplasia, nystagmus, astigmatism, protan color vision defect, myopia, and defective dark adaptation. Except for progression of axial myopia, the disease can be considered to be a stationary condition. Electroretinography reveals abnormalities in both photopic and scotopic functions. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:17525176, ECO:0000269 PubMed:22194652}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
  • Cone-rod dystrophy, X-linked 3 (CORDX3) [MIM:300476]: An inherited retinal dystrophy characterized by retinal pigment deposits visible on fundus examination, predominantly in the macular region, and initial loss of cone photoreceptors followed by rod degeneration. This leads to decreased visual acuity and sensitivity in the central visual field, followed by loss of peripheral vision. Severe loss of vision occurs earlier than in retinitis pigmentosa. {ECO:0000269 PubMed:16505158}. Note=The disease is caused by mutations affecting the gene represented in this entry.
