Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits acetylcholine-gated cation-selective channel activity. Contributes to acetylcholine binding activity. Involved in regulation of membrane potential. Localizes to acetylcholine-gated channel complex; integral component of postsynaptic specialization membrane; and neuromuscular junction. Is expressed in diaphragm; skeletal musculature; somite; and trunk. Used to study congenital myasthenic syndrome 3A. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital myasthenic syndrome 3A; congenital myasthenic syndrome 3B; and congenital myasthenic syndrome 3C. Orthologous to human CHRND (cholinergic receptor nicotinic delta subunit).
