Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Exhibits low voltage-gated calcium channel activity; voltage-gated calcium channel activity involved SA node cell action potential; and voltage-gated calcium channel activity involved in AV node cell action potential. Involved in several processes, including cardiac conduction; regulation of atrial cardiac muscle cell membrane depolarization; and response to nickel cation. Localizes to voltage-gated calcium channel complex. Is expressed in central nervous system; heart; hindlimb musculature; lower jaw molar; and retina. Used to study cerebellar ataxia type 42. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cerebellar ataxia type 42. Orthologous to human CACNA1G (calcium voltage-gated channel subunit alpha1 G).
