A cDNA encoding a N-type Ca2+ channel has been cloned from the murine neuroblastoma cell line N1A103. The open reading frame encodes a protein of 2,289 amino acids (257 kDa). Analysis of different clones provided evidence for the existence of distinct isoforms of N-type channels. High levels of mRNA were found in the pyramidal cell layers CA1, CA2 and CA3 of the hippocampus, in the dentate gyrus, in the cortex layers 2 and 4, in the subiculum and the habenula. The N-type Ca2+ channel gene has been localized on the chromosome 2, band A.
