Literature on SCN7A

SCN7A [ENSP00000386796]

Sodium channel protein cardiac and skeletal muscle subunit alpha; Mediates 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.
