Gene: CASR (calcium sensing receptor) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CASR
Name: calcium sensing receptor
Description: Exhibits several functions, including amino acid binding activity; calcium ion binding activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including calcium ion import; cellular calcium ion homeostasis; and detection of calcium ion. Localizes to the integral component of plasma membrane. Implicated in several diseases, including autosomal dominant hypocalcemia (multiple); hypercalcemia (multiple); hyperparathyroidism (multiple); idiopathic generalized epilepsy 8; and nephrolithiasis. Biomarker of atherosclerosis; end stage renal failure; and secondary hyperparathyroidism.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
