Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits calcium- and calmodulin-responsive adenylate cyclase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular chemical homeostasis; long-term memory; and regulation of synaptic plasticity. Localizes to several cellular components, including Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; hippocampal mossy fiber to CA3 synapse; and neuronal cell body membrane. Predicted to colocalize with actin cytoskeleton. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; cardiovascular system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ADCY8 (adenylate cyclase 8).
