calcium channel, voltage-dependent, R type, alpha 1E subunit
Symbol(s): CACNA1E CACNL1A6
Locus: 1 q25 -q31
EC number [1]
EntrezGene 777
OMIM 601013
RefSeq NM_000721
UniProt Q15878

The R-type calcium channel is a type of voltage-dependent calcium channel. Like the others of this class, the α1 subunit is the one that determines most of the channel's properties.

They are poorly understood, but like Q-type calcium channels, they appear to be present in cerebellar granule cells. They have a high threshold of activation and relatively slow kinetics.
