Gene Symbol:
CHRFAM7A Homo sapiens Homo sapiens
Full name:
CHRNA7 (exons 5-10) and FAM7A (exons A-E) fusion
Synonyms:
CHRNA7, CHRNA7-DR1, D-10, CHRNA7-FAM7A fusion protein, CHRNA7 (cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha 7, exons 5-10) and FAM7A (family with sequence similarity 7A, exons A-E) fusion, CHRNA7 (cholinergic receptor, nicotinic, alpha polypeptide 7, exons 5-10) and FAM7A (family with sequence similarity 7A, exons A-E) fusion, alpha 7 neuronal nicotinic acetylcholine receptor-FAM7A hybrid, alpha-7 nicotinic cholinergic receptor subunit
Genomic Location:
Chr 15: 28440735-28473156
Description:
The nicotinic acetylcholine receptors (nAChRs) are members of a superfamily of ligand-gated ion channels that mediate fast signal transmission at synapses. The family member CHRNA7, which is located on chromosome 15 in a region associated with several neuropsychiatric disorders, is partially duplicated and forms a hybrid with a novel gene from the ...
