Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Predicted to enable neurotransmitter receptor activity. Predicted to contribute to GABA-A receptor activity and chloride channel activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including chemical synaptic transmission; chloride transmembrane transport; and regulation of membrane potential. Predicted to act upstream of or within chloride transport and gamma-aminobutyric acid signaling pathway. Predicted to be located in postsynaptic membrane. Predicted to be integral component of membrane. Predicted to be part of GABA-A receptor complex. Predicted to be active in neuron projection and synapse. Predicted to be integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; eye; genitourinary system; immune system; and liver and biliary system. Orthologous to human GABRQ (gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor subunit theta).
