Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Predicted to enable GTPase activator activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of vascular associated smooth muscle cell proliferation and signal transduction. Predicted to act upstream of or within G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway. Predicted to be located in cytoplasm and membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; immune system; and visual system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in essential hypertension. Orthologous to human RGS5 (regulator of G protein signaling 5).
