Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits A-type (transient outward) potassium channel activity and voltage-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Involved in several processes, including locomotor rhythm; neuronal action potential; and sensory perception of pain. Localizes to several cellular components, including GABA-ergic synapse; glutamatergic synapse; and integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including heart; hindlimb digit; metanephros; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human KCND2 (potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily D member 2).
