Gene: Nalcn (sodium leak channel, non-selective) Rattus norvegicus
Symbol: Nalcn
Name: sodium leak channel, non-selective
Description: ENCODES a protein that exhibits cation channel activity (ortholog); leak channel activity (ortholog); INVOLVED IN calcium ion transmembrane transport (ortholog); potassium ion transmembrane transport (ortholog); regulation of resting membrane potential (ortholog); ASSOCIATED WITH CONGENITAL CONTRACTURES OF THE LIMBS AND FACE, HYPOTONIA, AND DEVELOPMENTAL DELAY (ortholog); genetic disease (ortholog); Hypotonia, Infantile, with Psychomotor Retardation and Characteristic Facies 1 (ortholog); FOUND IN integral component of membrane (inferred); INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; bisphenol A; dibutyl phthalate
Type: protein-coding
Also known as: brain voltage-gated cation channel; four domain-type voltage-gated ion channel alpha-1 subunit; rb21-channel; sodium leak channel non-selective protein; Vgcnl1; voltage gated channel like 1; voltage gated channel-like protein 1
