Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
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 plasma membrane and ruffle. Is expressed in cochlea; dorsal root ganglion; inferior vagus ganglion; vagus ganglion; and vibrissa. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in amyotrophic lateral sclerosis-parkinsonism/dementia complex 1. Orthologous to human TRPM7 (transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily M member 7).
