Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits GABA receptor binding activity. Involved in anterograde axonal transport of mitochondrion. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including axonal growth cone; early endosome; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; dorsal root ganglion; liver; spleen; and submandibular gland primordium. Used to study Stiff-Person syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in early infantile epileptic encephalopathy. Orthologous to human TRAK1 (trafficking kinesin protein 1).
