Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have adenylate cyclase inhibiting G protein-coupled glutamate receptor activity and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including locomotory behavior; retina development in camera-type eye; and sensory perception of light stimulus. Localizes to the new growing cell tip. Used to study congenital stationary night blindness 1B. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital stationary night blindness 1B. Is expressed in prostate gland; retina inner nuclear layer; and testis. Orthologous to human GRM6 (glutamate metabotropic receptor 6).
