Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits enzyme binding activity; voltage-gated calcium channel activity; and voltage-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Involved in several processes, including adult walking behavior; secretion by cell; and smooth muscle contraction involved in micturition. Localizes to several cellular components, including Z disc; caveolar macromolecular signaling complex; and dendritic shaft. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; eye; genitourinary system; gut; and heart. Used to study Timothy syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Brugada syndrome 3 and Timothy syndrome. Orthologous to human CACNA1C (calcium voltage-gated channel subunit alpha1 C).
