Gene: CACNA1A (calcium voltage-gated channel subunit alpha1 A) Homo sapiens
Symbol: CACNA1A
Name: calcium voltage-gated channel subunit alpha1 A
Description: Exhibits high voltage-gated calcium channel activity and syntaxin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including calcium ion transmembrane transport; cellular response to amyloid-beta; and positive regulation of cytosolic calcium ion concentration. Localizes to several cellular components, including cell projection; nucleus; and plasma membrane. Implicated in early infantile epileptic encephalopathy 42; hereditary ataxia (multiple); and migraine (multiple).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: REVIEWED
