FUNCTION: [Summary is not available for the mouse gene. This summary is for the human ortholog.] This gene encodes the skeletal muscle specific member of the calsequestrin protein family. Calsequestrin functions as a luminal sarcoplasmic reticulum calcium sensor in both cardiac and skeletal muscle cells. This protein, also known as calmitine, functions as a calcium regulator in the mitochondria of skeletal muscle. This protein is absent in patients with Duchenne and Becker types of muscular dystrophy. [provided by RefSeq, Jun 2013]
PHENOTYPE: Mice homozygous for an insertional mutation that inactivates the gene exhibit structural alterations of the Ca2+ release units, an increased frequency of mitochondria, and significantly impaired calcium handling in skeletal muscle. [provided by MGI curators]
