Calcium channel, voltage-dependent, gamma subunit 2

WAG, Stargazin, Cacng2
The protein encoded by this gene is a type I transmembrane AMPA receptor regulatory protein (TARP). TARPs regulate both trafficking and channel gating of the AMPA receptors. This gene is part of a functionally diverse eight-member protein subfamily of the PMP-22/EMP/MP20 family. This gene is a susceptibility locus for schizophrenia.

A current perspective on the role of AGCVIII kinases in PIN-mediated apical hook development.
Review
Chory et al., Los Angeles, United States. In Front Plant Sci, 2014
Their localization and activity are regulated by two subfamilies of AGCVIII protein kinases: the D6 PROTEIN KINASEs as well as PINOID and its two closely related WAG kinases.

Enhanced NMDA receptor-dependent thalamic excitation and network oscillations in stargazer mice.
GeneRIF
Huguenard et al., Stanford, United States. In J Neurosci, 2012
This study suggested that, in stg, a trafficking defect in synaptic AMPARs in RTN cells leads to a compensatory increase in synaptic NMDARs and enhanced thalamic excitability.

Selective loss of AMPA receptor subunits at inhibitory neuron synapses in the cerebellum of the ataxic stargazer mouse.
