Summaries for CHRM3 Gene

Entrez Gene Summary for CHRM3 Gene

  • The muscarinic cholinergic receptors belong to a larger family of G protein-coupled receptors. The functional diversity of these receptors is defined by the binding of acetylcholine and includes cellular responses such as adenylate cyclase inhibition, phosphoinositide degeneration, and potassium channel mediation. Muscarinic receptors influence many effects of acetylcholine in the central and peripheral nervous system. The muscarinic cholinergic receptor 3 controls smooth muscle contraction and its stimulation causes secretion of glandular tissue. Alternative promoter use and alternative splicing results in multiple transcript variants that have different tissue specificities. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2016]

GeneCards Summary for CHRM3 Gene

CHRM3 (Cholinergic Receptor Muscarinic 3) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CHRM3 include Prune Belly Syndrome and Cholinergic Urticaria. Among its related pathways are Pathways of neurodegeneration - multiple diseases and Monoamine GPCRs. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include G protein-coupled receptor activity and drug binding. An important paralog of this gene is CHRM5.

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CHRM3 Gene

  • The muscarinic acetylcholine receptor mediates various cellular responses, including inhibition of adenylate cyclase, breakdown of phosphoinositides and modulation of potassium channels through the action of G proteins. Primary transducing effect is Pi turnover.

Tocris Summary for CHRM3 Gene

  • Muscarinic receptors are widely distributed throughout the body and control distinct functions according to location and subtype (M1 - M5).They are predominantly expressed in the parasympathetic nervous system where they exert both inhibitory and excitatory effects.
