Voltage-dependent T-type calcium channel subunit alpha or Cav3.1 Ca2+ channel is encoded by the gene CACNA1G. Cav3.1 is a pore forming alpha subunit of T voltage-sensitive calcium channels and gives rise to T-type calcium currents. (transient opening calcium channels). These channels facilitate entry of calcium ions into excitable cells are involved in a variety of calcium dependent processes, including neurotransmitter release, muscle contraction, and gene expression. Cav3.1 is expressed in various tissues including heart and smooth muscle, kidney, bone, and brain as a membrane bound protein. Diseases associated with this gene include forms of Spinocerebellar Ataxia
