The protein encoded by this gene is involved in excitation-contraction coupling at the sarcoplasmic reticulum. The encoded protein can interact with CACNA1S, CACNB1, and calsequestrin to help regulate calcium influx and efflux in skeletal muscle. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2012]
GeneCards Summary for JSRP1 Gene
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for JSRP1 Gene
Involved in skeletal muscle excitation/contraction coupling (EC), probably acting as a regulator of the voltage-sensitive calcium channel CACNA1S. EC is a physiological process whereby an electrical signal (depolarization of the plasma membrane) is converted into a chemical signal, a calcium gradient, by the opening of ryanodine receptor calcium release channels. May regulate CACNA1S membrane targeting and activity.
