Gene: CAPN3 (calpain 3) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CAPN3
Name: calpain 3
RGD ID: 731876
Description: Exhibits several functions, including identical protein binding activity; ligase regulator activity; and titin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including calcium-dependent self proteolysis; protein destabilization; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to cytoplasm and nucleus. Implicated in autosomal dominant limb-girdle muscular dystrophy; autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2A; and muscular dystrophy.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
