Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits several functions, including G-protein alpha-subunit binding activity; adenylate cyclase inhibitor activity; and myosin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including detection of mechanical stimulus involved in sensory perception of sound; positive regulation of bone mineralization; and positive regulation of intracellular signal transduction. Localizes to several cellular components, including USH2 complex; periciliary membrane compartment; and stereocilia ankle link complex. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; eye; neural ectoderm; reproductive system; and spinal cord. Used to study Usher syndrome type 2C. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Usher syndrome type 2C and familial febrile seizures 4. Orthologous to human ADGRV1 (adhesion G protein-coupled receptor V1).
