RgIA [P6O,del13] (P00030) Protein Card

General Information
Name RgIA [P6O,del13] (named by ConoServer)
Alternative name(s) Reg1e,RgIA[Del13]-Amidated
Organism Conus regius
Organism region Eastern Pacific
Organism diet vermivorous
Protein Type Wild type
Notes RgIA precursor seems to be the precursor sequence of Reg1e. RgIA has been predicted from the protein prosequence (Ellison et al. 2006). RgIA presents an N-terminal arginine that is usually cleaved by an enzyme (CPE). Reg1e is therefore presumably the real mature peptide resulting from the natural processing of the "RgIA precursor". Inhibited HVA Ca2+ channel current via GABAB receptors in rat DRG neurons with an IC50 of 20.5 nM. (Halai 2011)
