Official Full Name
ATPase, Na+/K+ transporting, alpha 3 polypeptide
BackgroundThe protein encoded by this gene belongs to the family of P-type cation transport ATPases, and to the subfamily of;Na+/K+ -ATPases. Na+/K+ -ATPase is an integral membrane protein responsible for establishing and maintaining the;electrochemical gradients of Na and K ions across the plasma membrane. These gradients are essential for;osmoregulation, for sodium-coupled transport of a variety of organic and inorganic molecules, and for electrical;excitability of nerve and muscle. This enzyme is composed of two subunits, a large catalytic subunit (alpha) and a;smaller glycoprotein subunit (beta). The catalytic subunit of Na+/K+ -ATPase is encoded by multiple genes. This gene;encodes an alpha 3 subunit. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for;this gene.
