The CACNA2D1 gene encodes a voltage-dependent calcium channel subunit alpha-2/delta-1 protein that exists in 5 isoforms: isoform 1: 1,103 amino acids long, 124 kDA; isoform 2: 1,091 amino acids long, 123 kDA; isoform 3: 1,086 amino acids long, 122 kDA; isoform 4: 1,079 amino acids long, 121 kDA; and isoform 5: 1,084 amino acids long, 122 kDA. These proteins are critical in calcium current density and in activation and inactivation kinetics of the calcium channel. Additionally, these proteins function in excitation-contraction coupling. The CACNA2D1 gene participates in transcription of the CREB pathway, the caspase cascade, Fc-GammaR pathway, BMP and PDGF pathways, MAPK signaling pathway, and cardiac muscle contraction. It is known to interact with genes DLG4, CACNA1C, CACNA1D, CACNA1F, and YWHAB. The CACNA2D1 gene is associated with neuroblastoma, heart blocks, liver disease, parkinson's disease, dementia, malignant hyperthermia susceptibility, lambert-eaton myasthenic syndrome, timothy syndrome, peripheral neropathy, and fatty liver disease.
