Gene: Gja5 (gap junction protein, alpha 5) Mus musculus
Symbol: Gja5
Name: gap junction protein, alpha 5
RGD ID: 736165
Description: Enables gap junction channel activity involved in bundle of His cell-Purkinje myocyte electrical coupling. Involved in artery morphogenesis; cell communication by electrical coupling involved in cardiac conduction; and regulation of cardiac muscle cell action potential. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including cardiac conduction; circulatory system development; and regulation of systemic arterial blood pressure. Located in gap junction. Is expressed in several structures, including cardiovascular system; early conceptus; limb mesenchyme; musculature; and skin. Used to study tetralogy of Fallot. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in atrial fibrillation; atrial standstill 1; familial atrial fibrillation; and tetralogy of Fallot. Orthologous to human GJA5 (gap junction protein alpha 5).
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: VALIDATED
Previously known as: 5730555N10Rik; Cnx40; connexin 40; connexin i; connexin-40; Cx40; Cxni; gap junction alpha-5 protein; gap junction membrane channel protein alpha 5; Gja-; Gja-5
