Previous GeneCards Identifiers for CRCP Gene
This gene encodes a membrane protein that functions as part of a receptor complex for a small neuropeptide that increases intracellular cAMP levels. Alternate transcriptional splice variants, encoding different isoforms, have been characterized. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for CRCP Gene
CRCP (CGRP Receptor Component) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with CRCP include Communicating Hydrocephalus and Post-Cardiac Arrest Syndrome. Among its related pathways are RNA Polymerase III Transcription Initiation and Myometrial Relaxation and Contraction Pathways. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include nucleotide binding and RNA polymerase III activity.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for CRCP Gene
DNA-dependent RNA polymerase catalyzes the transcription of DNA into RNA using the four ribonucleoside triphosphates as substrates. Specific peripheric component of RNA polymerase III which synthesizes small RNAs, such as 5S rRNA and tRNAs. Plays a key role in sensing and limiting infection by intracellular bacteria and DNA viruses. Acts as nuclear and cytosolic DNA sensor involved in innate immune response. Can sense non-self dsDNA that serves as template for transcription into dsRNA. The non-self RNA polymerase III transcripts induce type I interferon and NF- Kappa-B through the RIG-I pathway (By similarity).
Accessory protein for the calcitonin gene-related peptide (CGRP) receptor. It modulates CGRP responsiveness in a variety of tissues.
