Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits calcium channel activity; cytoskeletal protein binding activity; and kinase activity. Involved in several processes, including actomyosin structure organization; calcium-dependent cell-matrix adhesion; and protein autophosphorylation. Localizes to the plasma membrane and ruffle. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-parkinsonism/dementia complex 1. Is expressed in cochlea; dorsal root ganglion; inferior vagus ganglion; vagus ganglion; and vibrissa. Orthologous to human TRPM7 (transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily M member 7).
