Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits transmitter-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Predicted to contribute to acetylcholine binding activity; acetylcholine receptor activity; and extracellular ligand-gated ion channel activity. Involved in several processes, including behavioral response to nicotine; positive regulation of transmission of nerve impulse; and synaptic transmission involved in micturition. Localizes to the cholinergic synapse. Orthologous to human CHRNB4 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic beta 4 subunit).
