Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have group III metabotropic 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 new growing cell tip. Is expressed in prostate gland; retina inner nuclear layer; and testis. Used to study congenital stationary night blindness 1B. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital stationary night blindness 1B. Orthologous to human GRM6 (glutamate metabotropic receptor 6).
