FunctionMediates 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:7720699, PubMed:17167479, PubMed:25240195, PubMed:26680203, PubMed:15385606, PubMed:16988069, PubMed:17145499, PubMed:19369487, PubMed:24311784). It is a tetrodotoxin-sensitive Na(+) channel isoform (PubMed:7720699). Plays a role in pain mechanisms, especially in the development of inflammatory pain (PubMed:17167479, PubMed:17145499, PubMed:19369487, PubMed:24311784).
Tissue specificityExpressed strongly in dorsal root ganglion, with only minor levels elsewhere in the body, smooth muscle cells, MTC cell line and C-cell carcinoma. Isoform 1 is expressed preferentially in the central and peripheral nervous system. Isoform 2 is expressed preferentially in the dorsal root ganglion.
Involvement in diseasePrimary erythermalgia
Indifference to pain, congenital, autosomal recessive
Paroxysmal extreme pain disorder
Generalized epilepsy with febrile seizures plus 7
Febrile seizures, familial, 3B
Sequence similaritiesBelongs to the sodium channel (TC 1.A.1.10) family. Nav1.7/SCN9A subfamily.
Contains 1 IQ domain.
DomainThe sequence contains 4 internal repeats, each with 5 hydrophobic segments (S1,S2,S3,S5,S6) and one positively charged segment (S4). Segments S4 are probably the voltage-sensors and are characterized by a series of positively charged amino acids at every third position.
modificationsPhosphorylation at Ser-1490 by PKC in a highly conserved cytoplasmic loop increases peak sodium currents.
Ubiquitinated by NEDD4L; which may promote its endocytosis. Does not seem to be ubiquitinated by NEDD4.
Cellular localizationCell membrane. Cell projection. In neurite terminals.
