Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits G protein-coupled receptor activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential and neurotransmitter receptor activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic cytosolic calcium ion concentration. Involved in several processes, including calcium-mediated signaling using intracellular calcium source; cellular response to amyloid-beta; and modulation of chemical synaptic transmission. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; neuron projection; and plasma membrane. Orthologous to human GRM5 (glutamate metabotropic receptor 5).
