Gene: CACNG8 (calcium voltage-gated channel auxiliary subunit gamma 8) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CACNG8
Name: calcium voltage-gated channel auxiliary subunit gamma 8
Description: The protein encoded by this gene is a type I transmembrane AMPA receptor regulatory protein (TARP). TARPs regulate both trafficking and channel gating of the AMPA receptors. This gene is part of a functionally diverse eight-member protein subfamily of the PMP-22/EMP/MP20 family and is located in a cluster with two family members, a type II TARP and a calcium channel gamma subunit. The mRNA for this gene is believed to initiate translation from a non-AUG (CUG) start codon. [provided by RefSeq, Dec 2010]
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: calcium channel, voltage-dependent, gamma subunit 8; FLJ16240; FLJ30598; neuronal voltage-gated calcium channel gamma-8 subunit; TARP gamma-8; transmembrane AMPAR regulatory protein gamma-8; voltage-dependent calcium channel gamma-8 subunit
