Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits voltage-gated sodium channel activity. Involved in cardiac conduction; regulation of atrial cardiac muscle cell membrane depolarization; and sodium ion transport. Localizes to C-fiber and plasma membrane. Is expressed in brain; ganglia; and heart. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial episodic pain syndrome 2. Orthologous to human SCN10A (sodium voltage-gated channel alpha subunit 10).
