Title: CDNA encoding the human .alpha.2 .delta.4 calcium channel subunit

Abstract: The present invention provides nucleic acid and polypeptide sequences describing an isoform of the .alpha.2.delta.-4 subunit of a voltage gated calcium channel. The nucleic acids described herein can be used to produce functional .alpha.2.delta.-4 protein. The calcium channel .alpha.2.delta.-4 protein may be isolated for the purposes of binding experiments or may be used in cells to form a functional calcium channel complex.
