Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits anion binding activity; ion channel binding activity; and molecular function regulator. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of sodium ion transmembrane transport; plasma membrane organization; and positive regulation of nitrogen compound metabolic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including the extracellular space; sarcolemma; and synaptic cleft. Used to study congenital myasthenic syndrome 8. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital myasthenic syndrome 8. Orthologous to human AGRN (agrin).
