GeneID: 796 Human CALCA

Swiss-port # P06881 Human Calcitonin gene-related peptide 1

Gene Symbol CALCA
Gene Full Name Calcitonin Related Polypeptide Alpha
Background This gene encodes the peptide hormones calcitonin, calcitonin gene-related peptide and katacalcin by tissue-specific alternative RNA splicing of the gene transcripts and cleavage of inactive precursor proteins. Calcitonin is involved in calcium regulation and acts to regulate phosphorus metabolism. Calcitonin gene-related peptide functions as a vasodilator and as an antimicrobial peptide while katacalcin is a calcium-lowering peptide. Multiple transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.[provided by RefSeq, Aug 2014]
Function Calcitonin causes a rapid but short-lived drop in the level of calcium and phosphate in blood by promoting the incorporation of those ions in the bones. [UniProt]
Cellular Localization Secreted
Calculated MW 14 kDa
PTM Amidation, Cleavage on pair of basic residues, Disulfide bond, Phosphoprotein. [UniProt]
