Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have ammonium transmembrane transporter activity; protein kinase binding activity; and sodium:potassium:chloride symporter activity. Involved in several processes, including detection of mechanical stimulus involved in sensory perception of sound; growth; and mammary gland duct morphogenesis. Localizes to the apical plasma membrane and basolateral plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in middle cerebral artery infarction. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; lung; metanephros; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human SLC12A2 (solute carrier family 12 member 2).
