Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Enables calcium channel activity; cytoskeletal protein binding activity; and kinase activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including calcium ion transport; calcium-dependent cell-matrix adhesion; and protein autophosphorylation. Located in plasma membrane and ruffle. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; cardiovascular system; genitourinary system; nervous system; and skin. 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).
