Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits phospholipid scramblase activity. Involved in calcium activated galactosylceramide scrambling and calcium activated phosphatidylcholine scrambling. Predicted to localize to the integral component of membrane and plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in dystonia 24. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; apical ectodermal ridge; nervous system; sensory organ; and skeleton. Orthologous to human ANO3 (anoctamin 3).
