Protein Overview: Amiloride-sensitive cation channel 3

Cation channel with high affinity for sodium, which is gated by extracellular protons and inhibited by the diuretic amiloride. Generates a biphasic current with a fast inactivating and a slow sustained phase. In sensory neurons is proposed to mediate the pain induced by acidosis that occurs in ischemic, damaged or inflamed tissue. May be involved in hyperalgesia. May play a role in mechanoreception. Heteromeric channel assembly seems to modulate channel properties.

Synonyms: Acid-sensing ion channel 3, ASIC3, Dorsal root ASIC, DRASIC

Gene name: Accn3
