Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have several functions, including PDZ domain binding activity; ionotropic glutamate receptor binding activity; and voltage-gated calcium channel activity. Involved in neurotransmitter receptor localization to postsynaptic specialization membrane and protein targeting. Localizes to several cellular components, including Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; glutamatergic synapse; and integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; eye; genitourinary system; and immune system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in childhood absence epilepsy and macular degeneration. Orthologous to human CACNG3 (calcium voltage-gated channel auxiliary subunit gamma 3).
