Voltage gated sodium channel, alpha-7 subunit (IPR028812)

Short name: Na_channel_a7su

Overlapping homologous superfamilies


Family relationships


Sodium channel protein type 7 subunit is an atypical voltage-gated sodium channel that could play an important physiological role in cardiac and uterine muscle. It has also been designated Nav2.1 as it could represent a distinct subfamily of voltage-dependent channels [PMID: 1317577, PMID: 7982916].
