Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to contribute to adenylate cyclase activity and cytidylate cyclase activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of nitric oxide mediated signal transduction; relaxation of vascular smooth muscle; and retrograde trans-synaptic signaling by nitric oxide, modulating synaptic transmission. Localizes to the GABA-ergic synapse and glutamatergic synapse. Used to study primary open angle glaucoma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Moyamoya disease. Orthologous to human GUCY1A1 (guanylate cyclase 1 soluble subunit alpha 1).
