Gene: Cacng8 (calcium voltage-gated channel auxiliary subunit gamma 8) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cacng8
Name: calcium voltage-gated channel auxiliary subunit gamma 8
Description: Exhibits ionotropic glutamate receptor binding activity and protein phosphatase 2B binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of AMPA receptor activity. Localizes to the dendrite membrane; glutamatergic synapse; and integral component of plasma membrane. Orthologous to human CACNG8 (calcium voltage-gated channel auxiliary subunit gamma 8); PARTICIPATES IN arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy pathway; dilated cardiomyopathy pathway; hypertrophic cardiomyopathy pathway; INTERACTS WITH 17beta-estradiol; 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; ammonium chloride.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: calcium channel, voltage-dependent, gamma subunit 8; neuronal voltage-gated calcium channel gamma-8 subunit; TARP gamma-8; transmembrane AMPAR regulatory protein gamma-8; voltage-dependent calcium channel gamma-8 subunit
