Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits cation channel activity. Involved in metal ion transport. Localizes to the apical plasma membrane and brush border membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in intestinal hypomagnesemia 1 and metal metabolism disorder. Is expressed in several structures, including cochlea; extraembryonic component; ganglia; and genitourinary system. Orthologous to human TRPM6 (transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily M member 6).
