Human Sodium Channel, Voltage-Gated, Type VIII, alpha (SCN8A) interaction partners

  1. This study demonstrated that SCN8A - I1327V is a gain-of-function mutation with altered features that are predicted to increase neuronal excitability and seizure susceptibility. Phenytoin is an effective inhibitor of the mutant channel and may be of use in treating patients with gain-of-function mutations of SCN8A.

  2. Epilepsy-associated mutations in the voltage-gated sodium channel Nav1.6, but not Nav1.1 (show SCN1A Proteins), upregulate resurgent currents; cannabidiol preferentially targets these currents.

  3. Either the FGF14 (show FGF14 Proteins)(V160A) or the FGF14 (show FGF14 Proteins)(K74A/I76A) mutation was sufficient to abolish the FGF14 (show FGF14 Proteins)-dependent regulation of peak transient Na(+) currents and the voltage-dependent activation and steady-state inactivation of Nav1.6; but only V160A with a concomitant alanine mutation at Tyr (show TYR Proteins)-158 could impede FGF14 (show FGF14 Proteins)-dependent modulation of the channel fast inactivation.

  4. we report an infant and his father with early onset focal epileptic seizures but without cognitive or neurological impairment in whom next generation sequence analysis identified a heterozygous mutation (c.5630A > G, p. (Asn1877Ser)) in the SCN8A gene

  5. the calpain-dependent cleavage of Nav1.6 channels expressed in human embryonic kidney (HEK) 293 cells caused the upregulation of I(NaP)

  6. Our study establishes SCN8A as a novel gene in which a recurrent mutation causes BFIS/ICCA (show PRRT2 Proteins), expanding the clinical-genetic spectrum of combined epileptic and dyskinetic syndromes.

  7. Human Nav1.6 channels generate larger resurgent currents than human Nav1.1 (show SCN1A Proteins) channels, but the SCN4B (show SCN4B Proteins)-derived Navbeta4 (show SCN4B Proteins) peptide does not protect either isoform from use-dependent reduction.

  8. These data strengthen previous findings linking gain-of-function mutations of SCN8A with EIEE and demonstrate the importance of functional testing in establishing the pathogenicity of de novo mutations.

  9. Expression profiling of SCN8A and NDUFC2 (show NDUFC2 Proteins) genes in colorectal carcinoma is reported. There was no NDUFC2 (show NDUFC2 Proteins) differential expression in colorectal carcinoma.

  10. Epileptic encephalopathy related to mutations in the SCN8A genes.

Mouse (Murine) Sodium Channel, Voltage-Gated, Type VIII, alpha (SCN8A) interaction partners

  1. The data of this study support the view that gain-of-function mutations of SCN8A lead to pathogenic alterations in brain function contributing to encephalopathy.

  2. The clinical phenotype of the severe hypomorphic sodium channel gene SCN8A mutant expands the spectrum of Scn8a disease to include a recessively inherited, chronic and progressive movement disorder.

  3. the presences of Nav1.1 (show SCN1A Proteins), Nav1.6, Navbeta1 and Navbeta3 mRNA and their reduced levels in rat SAN during aging.

  4. This study demonstrates that Nav channel expression in lumbar motoneurons is altered after SCI, and it shows a tight relationship between the calpain-dependent proteolysis of Nav1.6 channels, the upregulation of I(NaP (show CTNNBL1 Proteins)) and spastici

  5. the role of Nav1.6 in general anesthesia using two mouse mutants with reduced activity of Nav1.6, was examined.

  6. observed increased hippocampal pyramidal cell excitability in heterozygous and homozygous Scn8a-R1627H mutants, and decreased interneuron excitability in heterozygous Scn8a-R1627H mutants.

  7. The data support a model where ankyrinG-binding is required for preferential Nav1.6 insertion into the axon initial segment plasma membrane during development.

  8. the degenerating muscle mutation is a loss of function mutation of scn8a

  9. N1768D mutation of SCN8A is sufficient to induce seizures and SUDEP in knock-in mice.

  10. APP (show APP Proteins) enhances Nav1.6 sodium channel cell surface expression through a Go-coupled JNK (show MAPK8 Proteins) pathway

SCN8A Protein Profile

Protein Summary

This gene encodes a member of the sodium channel alpha subunit gene family. The encoded protein forms the ion pore region of the voltage-gated sodium channel. This protein is essential for the rapid membrane depolarization that occurs during the formation of the action potential in excitable neurons. Mutations in this gene are associated with mental retardation, pancerebellar atrophy and ataxia. Alternate splicing results in multiple transcript variants.
