Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits protein N-terminus binding activity and voltage-gated calcium channel activity. Involved in several processes, including behavioral fear response; regulation of peptide hormone secretion; and visual learning. Localizes to the integral component of postsynaptic membrane and integral component of presynaptic membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in early infantile epileptic encephalopathy. Orthologous to human CACNA1E (calcium voltage-gated channel subunit alpha1 E).
