Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits ion channel binding activity; phosphatidylinositol bisphosphate binding activity; and phosphatidylinositol-3,4,5-trisphosphate binding activity. Involved in several processes, including behavioral response to pain; phosphatidylinositol-mediated signaling; and positive regulation of cation channel activity. Localizes to the plasma membrane. Is expressed in gut; nervous system; and olfactory epithelium. Orthologous to human PIRT (phosphoinositide interacting regulator of transient receptor potential channels).
