Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits acetylcholine-gated cation-selective channel activity. Predicted to contribute to extracellular ligand-gated ion channel activity. Involved in cholinergic synaptic transmission; detection of mechanical stimulus involved in sensory perception of sound; and inner ear morphogenesis. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the cholinergic synapse; integral component of postsynaptic specialization membrane; and perikaryon. Orthologous to human CHRNA10 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic alpha 10 subunit).
