Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits acetylcholine binding activity. Contributes to acetylcholine-gated cation-selective channel activity. Involved in regulation of membrane potential. Localizes to the acetylcholine-gated channel complex; integral component of postsynaptic specialization membrane; and neuromuscular junction. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital myasthenic syndrome 2A and congenital myasthenic syndrome 2C. Orthologous to human CHRNB1 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic beta 1 subunit).
