Gene: Cacna1b (calcium voltage-gated channel subunit alpha1 B) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Cacna1b
Name: calcium voltage-gated channel subunit alpha1 B
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits high voltage-gated calcium channel activity; protein phosphatase 2A binding; voltage-gated calcium channel activity; INVOLVED IN calcium ion import; calcium ion transport; positive regulation of neurotransmitter secretion; PARTICIPATES IN calcium transport pathway; calcium/calcium-mediated signaling pathway; mitogen activated protein kinase signaling pathway; ASSOCIATED WITH abnormal axon morphology; demyelination; ASSOCIATED WITH Encephalomyelitis, Autoimmune, Experimental; Hyperalgesia; Dystonia (ortholog); FOUND IN axon terminus; dendritic shaft; neuron projection; INTERACTS WITH ammonium chloride; bis(2-ethylhexyl) phthalate; bisphenol A
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: BIII; brain calcium channel III; calcium channel, L type, alpha-1 polypeptide; calcium channel, voltage-dependent, N type, alpha 1B subunit; voltage gated N-type calcium channel Ca(v)2.2; voltage-dependent N-type calcium channel subunit alpha-1B; voltage-gated calcium channel subunit alpha Cav2.2
