Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have calcium channel activity and calcium, potassium:sodium antiporter activity. Predicted to be involved in cellular calcium ion homeostasis; inorganic cation transmembrane transport; and regulation of synaptic plasticity. Predicted to localize to integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in cerebellum; hippocampus; retina inner nuclear layer; retina nuclear layer; and retina outer nuclear layer. Used to study congenital stationary night blindness 1D. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital stationary night blindness 1D. Orthologous to human SLC24A1 (solute carrier family 24 member 1).
