Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to contribute to adenylate cyclase activity and cytidylate cyclase activity. Involved in cGMP-mediated signaling and trans-synaptic signaling by nitric oxide, modulating synaptic transmission. Predicted to localize to glutamatergic synapse; guanylate cyclase complex, soluble; and presynaptic active zone cytoplasmic component. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; cardiovascular system; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human GUCY1B1 (guanylate cyclase 1 soluble subunit beta 1).
