Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to contribute to potassium channel activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including learning or memory; negative regulation of low-density lipoprotein particle clearance; and negative regulation of maintenance of permeability of blood-brain barrier. Localizes to the plasma membrane. Predicted to colocalize with the mitochondrion. Used to study hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia and transient neonatal diabetes mellitus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial hyperinsulinemic hypoglycemia 1; hyperinsulinism; hypertension; permanent neonatal diabetes mellitus; and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human ABCC8 (ATP binding cassette subfamily C member 8).
