SCNN1G sodium channel, non voltage gated 1 gamma subunit

Also known as: PHA1; BESC3; ENaCg; SCNEG; ENaCgamma


Nonvoltage-gated, amiloride-sensitive, sodium channels control fluid and electrolyte transport across epithelia in many organs. These channels are heteromeric complexes consisting of 3 subunits: alpha, beta, and gamma. This gene encodes the gamma subunit, and mutations in this gene have been associated with Liddle syndrome.
