TRPC7 (Transient Receptor Potential Cation Channel Subfamily C Member 7) is a Protein Coding gene. Among its related pathways are Platelet homeostasis and Response to elevated platelet cytosolic Ca2+. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include binding and calcium channel activity. An important paralog of this gene is TRPC3.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for TRPC7 Gene
Thought to form a receptor-activated non-selective calcium permeant cation channel. Probably is operated by a phosphatidylinositol second messenger system activated by receptor tyrosine kinases or G-protein coupled receptors. Activated by diacylglycerol (DAG) (By similarity). May also be activated by intracellular calcium store depletion.
