Description: Enables connexin binding activity; disordered domain specific binding activity; and gap junction channel activity. Involved in several processes, including blood vessel diameter maintenance; cell communication by chemical coupling; and regulation of blood pressure. Located in cell projection. Part of connexin complex. Used to study hypertension. Biomarker of artery disease (multiple); glomerulonephritis; obesity; and ureteral obstruction. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in atrial fibrillation; atrial standstill 1; familial atrial fibrillation; and tetralogy of Fallot. Orthologous to human GJA5 (gap junction protein alpha 5); PARTICIPATES IN connexin signaling pathway; INTERACTS WITH 6-propyl-2-thiouracil; acadesine; all-trans-retinoic acid.
Type: protein-coding
RefSeq Status: PROVISIONAL
Previously known as: connexin 40; connexin i; connexin-40; Cx40; Cxni; gap junction alpha-5 protein; gap junction membrane channel protein alpha 5; gap junction membrane channel protein alpha 5 (connexin 40)
