Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits cannabinoid receptor activity and voltage-gated calcium channel activity involved in positive regulation of presynaptic cytosolic calcium levels. Involved in several processes, including axonal fasciculation; cannabinoid signaling pathway; and trans-synaptic signaling. Localizes to several cellular components, including the GABA-ergic synapse; integral component of mitochondrial membrane; and integral component of presynaptic membrane. Predicted to colocalize with the intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity; schizophrenia; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human CNR1 (cannabinoid receptor 1).
