FunctionThe alpha-2/delta subunit of voltage-dependent calcium channels regulates calcium current density and activation/inactivation kinetics of the calcium channel. Plays an important role in excitation-contraction coupling.
Tissue specificityIsoform 1 is expressed in skeletal muscle. Isoform 2 is expressed in the central nervous system. Isoform 2, isoform 4 and isoform 5 are expressed in neuroblastoma cells. Isoform 3, isoform 4 and isoform 5 are expressed in the aorta.
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the calcium channel subunit alpha-2/delta family. Contains 1 cache domain. Contains 1 VWFA domain.
DomainThe MIDAS-like motif in the VWFA domain binds divalent metal cations and is required to promote trafficking of the alpha-1 (CACNA1) subunit to the plasma membrane by an integrin-like switch.
Post-translational modificationsProteolytically processed into subunits alpha-2-1 and delta-1 that are disulfide-linked.
