Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have chloride transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in response to mechanical stimulus. Predicted to localize to intracellular membrane-bounded organelle. Is expressed in several structures, including ganglia; heart; hindbrain; oocyte; and trigeminal nerve. Used to study neuronal ceroid lipofuscinosis 3. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in coronary artery disease. Orthologous to human CLCN6 (chloride voltage-gated channel 6).
