The protein encoded by this gene is a type I transmembrane AMPA receptor regulatory protein (TARP). TARPs regulate both trafficking and channel gating of the AMPA receptors. 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, a type II TARP and a calcium channel gamma subun...

GeneCards Summary for CACNG4 Gene

CACNG4 (Calcium Voltage-Gated Channel Auxiliary Subunit Gamma 4) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Presenilin-Mediated Signaling and Cardiac conduction. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include voltage-gated calcium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is CACNG8.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CACNG4 Gene

  • Regulates the activity of L-type calcium channels that contain CACNA1C as pore-forming subunit (PubMed:21127204). Regulates the trafficking and gating properties of AMPA-selective glutamate receptors (AMPARs), including GRIA1 and GRIA4. Promotes their targeting to the cell membrane and synapses and modulates their gating properties by slowing their rates of activation, deactivation and desensitization and by mediating their resensitization (PubMed:21172611).
