Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits serotonin-gated cation-selective channel activity. Predicted to contribute to extracellular ligand-gated ion channel activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including nervous system process; positive regulation of ion transmembrane transporter activity; and signal transduction. Localizes to the integral component of plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in alcohol use disorder and mental depression. Orthologous to human HTR3B (5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 3B).
