Background Info: Detects ~36kDa. Does not cross-react with TARPGamma3, TARPGamma4 and TARPGamma8

Scientific Background: Stargazin belongs to a group called voltage gated calcium channels (VGCCs) which are present in most excitable cells. Stargazin is thought to stabilize the calcium channel in an inactivated (closed) state. There are five high voltage activated calcium channel types (L, N, P, Q, and R) and one low voltage activated channel type (T). Each of these channels exists as a heteromultimer of a1, b, a2/ d and g subunits with the voltage activated calcium channel function carried by the a subunits. VGCCs exert spatial and temporal control over cellular calcium concentrations and serve to modulate neurotransmitter release, hormone secretion, muscle contraction, electrical activity, cell metabolism and proliferation, gene expression, and neuronal survival.

subunit of voltage-dependent calcium channel; involved in influencing channel properties [RGD, Feb 2006]
UniProt Comments for Cacng2
Stargazin: Regulates the trafficking and gating properties of AMPA- selective glutamate receptors (AMPARs). Promotes their targeting to the cell membrane and synapses and modulates their gating properties by slowing their rates of activation, deactivation and desensitization. Does not show subunit-specific AMPA receptor regulation and regulates all AMPAR subunits. Thought to stabilize the calcium channel in an inactivated (closed) state. The L-type calcium channel is composed of five subunits: alpha-1, alpha-2/delta, beta and gamma. Interacts with the PDZ domains of DLG4/PSD-95 and DLG1/SAP97. May interact with GOPC. Acts as an auxiliary subunit for AMPA-selective glutamate receptors (AMPARs). Found in a complex with GRIA1, GRIA2, GRIA3, GRIA4, CNIH2, CNIH3, CACNG3, CACNG4, CACNG5, CACNG7 and CACNG8. Interacts with GRIA1. Brain. Belongs to the PMP-22/EMP/MP20 family. CACNG subfamily.
