Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have ATPase activity; ion channel binding activity; and transmembrane transporter activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including learning or memory; negative regulation of blood-brain barrier permeability; and negative regulation of low-density lipoprotein particle clearance. Localizes to plasma membrane. Predicted to colocalize with mitochondrion. Is expressed in cerebral cortex; foregut-midgut junction; heart ventricle; and retina inner nuclear layer. Used to study hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia and transient neonatal diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia 1; hyperinsulinism; hypertension; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human ABCC8 (ATP binding cassette subfamily C member 8).
