Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits calcium ion binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including calcium ion transport; cellular calcium ion homeostasis; and regulation of striated muscle contraction. Localizes to sarcoplasmic reticulum membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including diaphragm; limb; musculature; testis; and tongue. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Brody myopathy. Orthologous to human ATP2A1 (ATPase sarcoplasmic/endoplasmic reticulum Ca2+ transporting 1).
