This locus encodes a transmembrane protein. Mutations at this locus have been associated with craniofacial dysmorphism, skeletal anomalies, and cognitive disability. Mutations at this locus have also been associated with open angle glaucoma blindness. Alternatively spliced transcript variants have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Jan 2012]

UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot Summary for TMCO1 Gene
Calcium-selective channel required to prevent calcium stores from overfilling, thereby playing a key role in calcium homeostasis (PubMed:27212239). In response to endoplasmic reticulum overloading, assembles into a homotetramer, forming a functional calcium-selective channel, regulating the calcium content in endoplasmic reticulum store (PubMed:27212239).
