Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits G-protein activated inward rectifier potassium channel activity. Involved in thyroid hormone metabolic process. Localizes to the integral component of presynaptic membrane and parallel fiber to Purkinje cell synapse. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in alcohol use disorder and heroin dependence. Orthologous to human KCNJ6 (potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily J member 6).
