Voltage-dependent calcium channels mediate the entry of calcium ions into excitable cells and are also involved in a variety of calcium-dependent processes including muscle contraction hormone or neurotransmitter release and gene expression. Calcium channels are multisubunit complexes composed of alpha-1 beta alpha-2/delta and gamma subunits. The channel activity is directed by the pore-forming alpha-1 subunit whereas the others act as auxiliary subunits regulating this activity. The distinctive properties of the calcium channel types are related primarily to the expression of a variety of alpha-1 isoforms alpha-1A B C D E and S. This gene encodes the alpha-1A subunit which is predominantly expressed in neuronal tissue. Mutations in this gene are associated with 2 neurologic disorders familial hemiplegic migraine and episodic ataxia 2. This gene also exhibits polymorphic variation due to (CAG)n-repeats. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene. In one set of transcript variants the (CAG)n-repeats occur in the 3' UTR and are not associated with any disease. But in another set of variants an insertion extends the coding region to include the (CAG)n-repeats which encode a polyglutamine tract. Expansion of the (CAG)n-repeats from the normal 4-16 to 21-28 in the coding region is associated with spinocerebellar ataxia 6. [provided by RefSeq Mar 2010]
