Gene: CHGA (chromogranin A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CHGA
Name: chromogranin A
Description: Involved in several processes, including defense response to bacterium; mast cell chemotaxis; and mast cell cytokine production. Localizes to the perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Implicated in IgA glomerulonephritis; end stage renal failure; hypertension; and prostate cancer. Biomarker of end stage renal failure and pheochromocytoma.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
Also known as: betagranin (N-terminal fragment of chromogranin A); catestatin; CGA; chromofungin; chromogranin-A; parathyroid secretory protein 1; pituitary secretory protein I; SP-I
