Previous GeneCards Identifiers for GNB5 Gene
Heterotrimeric guanine nucleotide-binding proteins (G proteins), which integrate signals between receptors and effector proteins, are composed of an alpha, a beta, and a gamma subunit. These subunits are encoded by families of related genes. This gene encodes a beta subunit. Beta subunits are important regulators of alpha subunits, as well as of certain signal transduction receptors and effectors. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms exist. [provided by RefSeq, Jul 2008]
GeneCards Summary for GNB5 Gene
GNB5 (G Protein Subunit Beta 5) is a Protein Coding gene. Diseases associated with GNB5 include Language Delay And Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder/Cognitive Impairment With Or Without Cardiac Arrhythmia and Intellectual Developmental Disorder With Cardiac Arrhythmia. Among its related pathways are Akt Signaling and Presynaptic function of Kainate receptors. Gene Ontology (GO) annotations related to this gene include GTPase activity and chaperone binding. An important paralog of this gene is GNB1.
UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot for GNB5 Gene
Enhances GTPase-activating protein (GAP) activity of regulator of G protein signaling (RGS) proteins, hence involved in the termination of the signaling initiated by the G protein coupled receptors (GPCRs) by accelerating the GTP hydrolysis on the G-alpha subunits, thereby promoting their inactivation (Probable). Increases RGS9 GTPase-activating protein (GAP) activity, hence contributes to the deactivation of G protein signaling initiated by D(2) dopamine receptors (PubMed:27677260). May play an important role in neuronal signaling, including in the parasympathetic, but not sympathetic, control of heart rate (By similarity).
Heterotrimeric G proteins are membrane bound GTPases that are linked to 7-TM receptors. Each G protein contains an alpha-, beta- and gamma-subunit and is bound to GDP in the 'off' state. Ligand binding causes a receptor conformational change, detaching the G protein and switching it 'on'.
