This gene encodes a member of the alpha-2/delta subunit family a protein in the voltage-dependent calcium channel complex. Calcium channels mediate the influx of calcium ions into the cell upon membrane polarization and consist of a complex of alpha-1 alpha-2/delta beta and gamma subunits in a 1:1:1:1 ratio. Various versions of each of these subunits exist either expressed from similar genes or the result of alternative splicing. Research on a highly similar protein in rabbit suggests the protein described in this record is cleaved into alpha-2 and delta subunits. Alternate transcriptional splice variants of this gene have been observed but have not been thoroughly characterized. [provided by RefSeq Jul 2008]
