Belongs to the sodium channel (TC 1.A.1.10) family. Nav1.7/SCN9A subfamily.
Expressed strongly in dorsal root ganglion, with only minor levels elsewhere in the body, smooth muscle cells, MTC cell line and C-cell carcinoma. Isoform 1 is expressed preferentially in the central and peripheral nervous system. Isoform 2 is expressed preferentially in the dorsal root ganglion.
Phosphorylation at Ser-1490 by PKC in a highly conserved cytoplasmic loop increases peak sodium currents.; Ubiquitinated by NEDD4L; which may promote its endocytosis. Does not seem to be ubiquitinated by NEDD4.
Cell membrane. Cell projection.
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. It is a tetrodotoxin-sensitive Na(+) channel isoform. Plays a role in pain mechanisms, especially in the development of inflammatory pain.
Just like the interactions between antigens and antibodies, the higher the affinity between you and us the better.
