CACNA1C (Voltage-dependent L-type Calcium Channel Subunit alpha-1C, Calcium Channel, L Type, alpha-1 Polypeptide, Isoform 1, Cardiac Muscle, Voltage-gated Calcium Channel Subunit alpha Cav1.2, CACH2, CACN2, CACNL1A1, CCHL1A1)
Description:
This gene encodes an alpha-1 subunit of a voltage-dependent calcium channel. Calcium channels mediate the influx of calcium ions into the cell upon membrane polarization. The alpha-1 subunit consists of 24 transmembrane segments and forms the pore through which ions pass into the cell. The calcium channel consists of a complex of alpha-1, alpha-2/delta, beta, and gamma subunits in a 1:1:1:1 ratio. There are multiple isoforms of each of these proteins, either encoded by different genes or the result of alternative splicing of transcripts. The protein encoded by this gene binds to and is inhibited by dihydropyridine. Many alternate transcriptional splice variants of this gene have been observed but have not been thoroughly characterized.

Applications:
Suitable for use in ELISA and Western Blot. Other applications not tested.
