Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Enables voltage-gated sodium channel activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including cardiac conduction; regulation of atrial cardiac muscle cell membrane depolarization; and sodium ion transport. Located in 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).
