Gene: Cacnb4 (calcium channel, voltage-dependent, beta 4 subunit) Mus musculus
Symbol: Cacnb4
Name: calcium channel, voltage-dependent, beta 4 subunit
Description: Exhibits voltage-gated calcium channel activity involved in positive regulation of presynaptic cytosolic calcium levels. Involved in several processes, including adult walking behavior; cellular response to leukemia inhibitory factor; and hematopoietic or lymphoid organ development. Localizes to glutamatergic synapse and voltage-gated calcium channel complex. Is expressed in cerebellum; heart; and telencephalon. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in dilated cardiomyopathy; episodic ataxia; episodic ataxia type 5; and idiopathic generalized epilepsy 9. Orthologous to human CACNB4 (calcium voltage-gated channel auxiliary subunit beta 4); PARTICIPATES IN calcium transport pathway; calcium/calcium-mediated signaling pathway; arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy pathway; INTERACTS WITH 1,1-dichloroethene; 17alpha-ethynylestradiol; 17beta-estradiol.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Also known as: 3110038O15Rik; CAB4; calcium channel voltage-dependent subunit beta 4; Cchb4; lethargic; lh; MGC31529; voltage-dependent L-type calcium channel subunit beta-4
