Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits cGMP binding activity and cGMP-dependent protein kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including cGMP-mediated signaling; nervous system development; and relaxation of vascular smooth muscle. Localizes to the Golgi apparatus and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in thoracic aortic aneurysm. Orthologous to human PRKG1 (protein kinase cGMP-dependent 1).
