Calcium-dependent chloride channels (Ca-CIC or CaCC family)
CaCCs that are known to occur in humans are encoded by the following genes:
Accessories: CLCA1 - CLCA4
Anoctamins: ANO-1 and ANO-2
Bestrophins: BEST1 - BEST4
CaCC channels are a heterogeneous groups of ligand-gated ion channels for chloride that have been identified in many epithelial and endothelial cell types as well as in smooth muscle cells, including proteins from several structurally different families: chloride channel accessory (CLCA), bestrophin (BEST), and calcium-dependent chloride channel anoctamin (ANO or TMEM16) channels. Members of the Ca-CIC family exhibit 7 to 10 transmembrane segments.
