Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits cation channel activity. Involved in metal ion transport. Localizes to apical plasma membrane and brush border membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including cochlea; extraembryonic component; ganglia; and genitourinary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in intestinal hypomagnesemia 1 and metal metabolism disorder. Orthologous to human TRPM6 (transient receptor potential cation channel subfamily M member 6).
