Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits intracellular phosphatidylinositol-3,5-bisphosphate-sensitive cation channel activity. Involved in several processes, including autophagosome maturation; cellular response to calcium ion; and protein homotetramerization. Localizes to the integral component of membrane and intracellular vesicle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in glycoproteinosis and mucolipidosis type IV. Orthologous to human MCOLN1 (mucolipin 1).
