RgIA (P02585) Protein Card

General Information
Name RgIA
Alternative name(s) Rg1a
Organism Conus regius
Organism region Eastern Pacific
Organism diet vermivorous
Protein Type Wild type
Protein precursor RgIA precursor (593)
Notes This protein sequence has been predicted from the protein prosequence (Ellison et al. 2006). The final arginine is usually cleaved by an enzyme (CPE). The sequence Reg1e, a protein directly purified from the venom duct, seems to be the real mature peptide corresponding to the precursor sequence (it presents an hydroxyproline, a N-terminal amidation and does not have the arginine).

Inhibition of N-type Ca2+ channel current through the GABAB in a9 KO mouse DRG neurons with an IC50 of 22.4 nM (Callaghan et al.). The specific receptor remains unclear. Inhibited HVA Ca2+ channel current via GABAB receptors in rat DRG neurons with an IC50 of 14.7 nM. (Halai 2011)
