Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits ion gated channel activity and ligand-gated sodium channel activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of synapse assembly; regulation of systemic arterial blood pressure by aortic arch baroreceptor feedback; and sensory perception of mechanical stimulus. Localizes to the dendritic spine; integral component of plasma membrane; and neuronal cell body. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system. Orthologous to human ASIC2 (acid sensing ion channel subunit 2).
