Gene Family: G protein subunits alpha, group s

Also known as : "GalphaS subunits", "Gs proteins", "Gs alpha subunits", "G-protein alpha subunits, group S ", "G alpha stimulatory subunits", "G(S)alpha subunits"

G-protein alpha subunit, group S: This family consists of the G protein alpha subunit group S (stimulatory) which transduces signals from various cell surface receptors to the cAMP-generating enzyme adenylyl cyclase. The G alpha-S subunit is encoded by GNAS, a complex imprinted gene that uses multiple promoters to generate several gene products. [Source: InterPro IPR000367]
