Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits chloride channel activity and protein dimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including detection of temperature stimulus involved in sensory perception of pain; positive regulation of insulin secretion involved in cellular response to glucose stimulus; and trachea development. Localizes to the apical plasma membrane; external side of plasma membrane; and integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ANO1 (anoctamin 1).
