Gene Summary

[ - ] NCBI Entrez Gene

Gene ID 55515 Official Symbol ACCN4
Locus N/A Gene Type protein-coding
Synonyms ASIC4; BNAC4; MGC17248; MGC24860
Full Name amiloride-sensitive cation channel 4, pituitary
Description amiloride-sensitive cation channel 4, pituitary
Chromosome 2q35
Also Known As acid-sensing ion channel 4; amiloride-sensitive cation channel 4; brain sodium channel 4
Summary This gene belongs to the superfamily of acid-sensing ion channels, which are proton-gated, amiloride-sensitive sodium channels. These channels have been implicated in synaptic transmission, pain perception as well as mechanoperception. This gene is predominantly expressed in the pituitary gland, and was considered a candidate for paroxysmal dystonic choreoathetosis (PDC), a movement disorder, however, no correlation was found between mutations in this gene and PDC. Alternative splicing at this locus results in two transcript variants encoding different isoforms. [provided by RefSeq]
