Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits transmitter-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Predicted to contribute to acetylcholine binding activity and acetylcholine receptor 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 cholinergic synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; eye; genitourinary system; nervous system; and thymus. Orthologous to human CHRNB4 (cholinergic receptor nicotinic beta 4 subunit).
