Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits ion channel binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to magnesium ion; negative regulation of delayed rectifier potassium channel activity; and neuronal action potential. Localizes to several cellular components, including intercalated disc; main axon; and synapse. Predicted to colocalize with bicellular tight junction. Is expressed in central nervous system and heart. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive non-syndromic intellectual disability. Orthologous to human ANK3 (ankyrin 3).
