TRPC5 encodes the human gene, Transient receptor potential cation channel, subfamily C, member 5. It may also be known as: Short transient receptor potential channel 5; Transient receptor protein 5; TRP-5; hTRP-5; hTRP5; TrpC5; protein phosphatase 1, regulatory subunit 159; PPP1R159; TRP5. The encoded protein has an amino acid length of 973 and a mass of 111.4 kDa. Other isoforms may exist. TRPC5 is a member of the Transient receptor (TC 1.A.4) family, STrpC subfamily, TRPC5 sub-subfamily. Homologs of this gene exist in other organisms, including: Yeast, Arabidopsis.
