Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Exhibits voltage-gated calcium channel activity. Involved in calcium ion transmembrane transport and sarcoplasmic reticulum calcium ion transport. Predicted to localize to L-type voltage-gated calcium channel complex. Is expressed in brain; heart; retina; and spinal cord. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in malignant hyperthermia. Orthologous to human CACNG1 (calcium voltage-gated channel auxiliary subunit gamma 1).
