Human Gene SLC8A3 (ENST00000394330.6) from GENCODE V38
Description: Homo sapiens solute carrier family 8 member A3 (SLC8A3), transcript variant f, mRNA. (from RefSeq NM_182936) RefSeq Summary (NM_182936): This gene encodes a member of the sodium/calcium exchanger integral membrane protein family. Na+/Ca2+ exchange proteins are involved in maintaining Ca2+ homeostasis in a wide variety of cell types. The protein is regulated by intracellular calcium ions and is found in both the plasma membrane and intracellular organellar membranes, where exchange of Na+ for Ca2+ occurs in an electrogenic manner. Alternative splicing has been observed for this gene and multiple variants have been described. [provided by RefSeq, Aug 2013]. Gencode Transcript: ENST00000394330.6 Gencode Gene: ENSG00000100678.19 Transcript (Including UTRs) Position: hg38 chr14:70,044,419-70,080,180 Size: 35,762 Total Exon Count: 5 Strand: - Coding Region Position: hg38 chr14:70,045,947-70,052,091 Size: 6,145 Coding Exon Count: 4
ID:NAC3_HUMAN DESCRIPTION: RecName: Full=Sodium/calcium exchanger 3; AltName: Full=Na(+)/Ca(2+)-exchange protein 3; Flags: Precursor; FUNCTION: Rapidly transports Ca(2+) during excitation-contraction coupling. Ca(2+) is extruded from the cell during relaxation so as to prevent overloading of intracellular stores (By similarity). ENZYME REGULATION: By intracellular calcium ions (By similarity). SUBCELLULAR LOCATION: Membrane; Multi-pass membrane protein. TISSUE SPECIFICITY: Isoform 2 is expressed in brain and skeletal muscle. Isoform 3 is expressed in excitable cells of brain, retina and skeletal muscle. Isoform 4 is expressed in skeletal muscle. SIMILARITY: Belongs to the sodium/potassium/calcium exchanger family. SLC8 subfamily. SIMILARITY: Contains 2 Calx-beta domains.
The RNAfold program from the Vienna RNA Package is used to perform the secondary structure predictions and folding calculations. The estimated folding energy is in kcal/mol. The more negative the energy, the more secondary structure the RNA is likely to have.
ModBase Predicted Comparative 3D Structure on P57103
The pictures above may be empty if there is no ModBase structure for the protein. The ModBase structure frequently covers just a fragment of the protein. You may be asked to log onto ModBase the first time you click on the pictures. It is simplest after logging in to just click on the picture again to get to the specific info on that model.
Orthologous Genes in Other Species
Orthologies between human, mouse, and rat are computed by taking the best BLASTP hit, and filtering out non-syntenic hits. For more distant species reciprocal-best BLASTP hits are used. Note that the absence of an ortholog in the table below may reflect incomplete annotations in the other species rather than a true absence of the orthologous gene.
