Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Contributes to potassium channel activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including defense response to virus; potassium ion import across plasma membrane; and response to ATP. Localizes to sarcolemma and sarcomere. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; heart; nervous system; nose; and respiratory system. Used to study coronary artery disease and hypertrichotic osteochondrodysplasia Cantu type. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in dilated cardiomyopathy; dilated cardiomyopathy 1O; familial atrial fibrillation; and hypertrichotic osteochondrodysplasia Cantu type. Orthologous to human ABCC9 (ATP binding cassette subfamily C member 9).
