Sodium channel protein type 5 subunit alpha - Q14524 (SCN5A_HUMAN)


Protein Feature View of PDB entries mapped to a UniProtKB sequence  

This protein mediates the voltage-dependent sodium ion permeability of excitable membranes. Assuming opened or closed conformations in response to the voltage difference across the membrane, the protein forms a sodium-selective channel through which Na(+) ions may pass in accordance with their electrochemical gradient (PubMed:1309946, PubMed:21447824, PubMed:25370050, PubMed:23420830, PubMed:23085483, PubMed:26279430, PubMed:26392562, PubMed:26776555). It is a tetrodotoxin-resistant Na(+) channel isoform (PubMed:1309946). This channel is responsible for the initial upstroke of the action potential. Channel inactivation is regulated by intracellular calcium levels (PubMed:19074138). UniProt

Subunit Structure
Interacts with the PDZ domain of the syntrophin SNTA1, SNTB1 and SNTB2 (By similarity). Interacts with NEDD4, NEDD4L, WWP2 and GPD1L (PubMed:15217910, PubMed:15548568, PubMed:19666841). Interacts with CALM (PubMed:21167176, PubMed:22705208, PubMed:25370050). Interacts with FGF13; the interaction is direct and FGF13 may regulate SNC5A density at membranes and function (PubMed:21817159, PubMed:22705208, PubMed:26392562). May also interact with FGF12 and FGF14 (PubMed:26392562). Interacts with the spider Jingzhaotoxin-I (AC P83974, AC B1P1B7, AC B1P1B8) (PubMed:26721415). Interacts with ANK3 (PubMed:15579534). UniProt

Data origin/color codes
The vertical color bar on the left side indicates data provenance.
Data in green originates from UniProtKB  
Variation data (sourced from UniProt) shows non-genetic variation from the ExPASy   and dbSNP   websites.
Data in yellow originates from Pfam  , by interacting with the HMMER3 web site  
Data in purple originates from Phosphosite  .
Data in orange originates from the SCOP   (version 1.75) and SCOPe   (version 2.04) classifications.
Data in grey has been calculated using BioJava  . Protein disorder predictions are based on JRONN (Troshin, P. and Barton, G. J. unpublished), a Java implementation of RONN  
  • Red: potentially disorderd region
  • Blue: probably ordered region.
Hydropathy has been calculated using a sliding window of 15 residues and summing up scores from standard hydrophobicity tables.
  • Red: hydrophobic
  • Blue: hydrophilic.
Data in lilac represent the genomic exon structure projected onto the UniProt sequence.
Data in blue originates from PDB
  • Secstruc: Secondary structure projected from representative PDB entries onto the UniProt sequence.
Sequence Mismatches It is now possible to see information about expression tags, cloning artifacts, and many other details related to sequence mismatches.
Icons represent a number of different sequence modifications that can be observed in PDB files. For example the 'T' icon T represents expression tags that have been added to the sequence. The 'E' icon E represents an engineered mutation. However, besides these two, there are many other icons. For more information about the meaning and exact position of a sequence modification, move the cursor over the icon.
