GeneID: 311



Names

Common Name: PLCH1 Type: Gene
Chromosome: 3 (NC_000003.12) Locus: NM_001130960.2 (PLCH1)
HUGO Symbol: PLCH1 Full Name: phospholipase C eta 1
Exons: 23 Introns: 22

Description:
PLCH1 is a member of the PLC-eta family of the phosphoinositide-specific phospholipase C (PLC) superfamily of enzymes that cleave phosphatidylinositol 4,5-bisphosphate (PtdIns(4,5)P2), a membrane phospholipid, to generate second messengers inositol 1,4,5-trisphosphate (IP3) and diacylglycerol (DAG). These second messengers in turn control intracellular levels of free Ca2+ and protein kinase C activity, respectively. Genetic variance in PLCH1 gene associated with episodes of pain in patients with sickle cell disease.

Synonyms: PLCL3 , PLC-L3 , PLC eta 1
