Summaries for CACNG1 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CACNG1 Gene

  • Voltage-dependent calcium channels are composed of five subunits. The protein encoded by this gene represents one of these subunits, gamma, and is one of two known gamma subunit proteins. This particular gamma subunit is part of skeletal muscle 1,4-dihydropyridine-sensitive calcium channels and is an integral membrane protein that plays a role in excitation-contraction coupling. This gene is part of a functionally diverse eight-member protein subfamily of the PMP-22/EMP/MP20 family and is located in a cluster with two family members that function as transmembrane AMPA receptor regulatory proteins (TARPs).

GeneCards Summary for CACNG1 Gene

CACNG1 (Calcium Voltage-Gated Channel Auxiliary Subunit Gamma 1) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CACNG1 include Malignant Hyperthermia and Malignant Hyperthermia Susceptibility. Among its related pathways are Cardiac conduction and NFAT and Cardiac Hypertrophy. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include voltage-gated calcium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is CACNG6.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for CACNG1 Gene

  • This protein is a subunit of the dihydropyridine (DHP) sensitive calcium channel. Plays a role in excitation-contraction coupling. The skeletal muscle DHP-sensitive Ca(2+) channel may function only as a multiple subunit complex.
