Gene: CACNG3 (calcium voltage-gated channel auxiliary subunit gamma 3) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CACNG3
Name: calcium voltage-gated channel auxiliary subunit gamma 3
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. This gene is a susceptibility locus for childhood absence epilepsy.

Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: Cacng2; calcium channel, voltage-dependent, gamma subunit 3; neuronal voltage-gated calcium channel gamma-3 subunit; OTTHUMP00000162423; TARP gamma-3; transmembrane AMPAR regulatory protein gamma-3; voltage-dependent calcium channel gamma-3 subunit; voltage-gated calcium channel gamma subunit
