Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have inward rectifier potassium channel activity. Predicted to be involved in potassium ion import across plasma membrane and regulation of ion transmembrane transport. Localizes to integral component of presynaptic membrane and parallel fiber to Purkinje cell synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; alimentary system; brain; male reproductive gland or organ; and thymus. Orthologous to human KCNJ3 (potassium inwardly rectifying channel subfamily J member 3).
