Target (abbrv.) Calcineurin
Target (full name) Calcineurin
Somalogic ID (Sequence ID) SL003657 (4903-72_1)
Entrez Gene Symbol PPP3CAPPP3R1
UniProt ID Q08209P63098
UniProt Comment
  • Q08209: Calcium-dependent, calmodulin-stimulated protein phosphatase. Many of the substrates contain a PxIxIT motif. This subunit may have a role in the calmodulin activation of calcineurin. Dephosphorylates DNM1L, HSPB1 and SSH1.
  • P63098: Regulatory subunit of calcineurin, a calcium-dependent, calmodulin stimulated protein phosphatase. Confers calcium sensitivity.

All locus annotations are based on the sentinel SNP (rs17266357) and 48 proxy variant(s) that is/are in linkage disequilibrium r2 ≥ 0.8. Linkage disequilibrium is based on data from the 1000 Genomes Project, phase 3 version 5, European population and was retrieved using SNiPA's Block Annotation feature.
