Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Exhibits calcium sensitive guanylate cyclase activator activity. Involved in phototransduction; regulation of guanylate cyclase activity; and visual perception. Localizes to photoreceptor outer segment. Is expressed in 2-cell stage embryo; central nervous system; and eye. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cone-rod dystrophy 14. Orthologous to human GUCA1A (guanylate cyclase activator 1A).
