Previous GeneCards Identifiers for INPP5A Gene
The protein encoded by this gene is a membrane-associated type I inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (InsP3) 5-phosphatase. InsP3 5-phosphatases hydrolyze Ins(1,4,5)P3, which mobilizes intracellular calcium and acts as a second messenger mediating cell responses to various stimulation. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for INPP5A Gene
Phosphatase that specifically hydrolyzes the 5-phosphate of inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate to inositol 1,4-bisphosphate, and inositol 1,3,4,5-tetrasphosphate to inositol 1,3,4-trisphosphate (PubMed:8013665, PubMed:8769125, PubMed:8626616). Plays a crucial role in the survival of cerebellar Purkinje cells (By similarity).
