1.A.1.11.7
The voltage-dependent Ca2+ channel subunit α-1I, Cav3.3, CACNA1I (isoform CRA_c (2223 aas and 24 TMSs)) (Hamid et al. 2006). It is a low voltage-activated Ca2+ channel in contrast to Cav1.2 (TC# 1.A.1.11.4) which is a high voltage-activated Ca2+ channel (Sanchez-Sandoval et al. 2018). The homolog in Cynops pyrrhogaster (85% identical) is inhibited by Ni2+ and may play a role in the sperm acrosome reaction (Kon et al. 2019). Kinase and phosphatase modulation of T-type Ca2+ channel (TTCC) isoforms Cav3.1, Cav3.2, and Cav3.3,  are mostly described for roles unrelated to cellular excitability (Sharma et al. 2023), and potential modulations that are yet to be explored are also discussed. A possible involvement of CaV3 in carcinogenic processes and is a potential pharmacological target in new therapies for breast cancer treatment (Aguiar et al. 2023).
