Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits voltage-gated potassium channel activity. Involved in inner ear morphogenesis; potassium ion transport; and sensory perception of sound. Predicted to localize to cytoplasm; neuron projection; and voltage-gated potassium channel complex. Is expressed in heart; utricle; and utricle epithelium. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 2A and sensorineural hearing loss. Orthologous to human KCNQ4 (potassium voltage-gated channel subfamily Q member 4).
