Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to contribute to ATP binding activity; ATPase activity; and alkali metal ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including forebrain development; regulation of blood circulation; and regulation of muscle contraction. Localizes to T-tubule; cell projection; and neuronal cell body. Used to study familial hemiplegic migraine. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in alternating hemiplegia of childhood; benign neonatal seizures; familial hemiplegic migraine 2; hypertension; and migraine with aura. Is expressed in several structures, including genitourinary system; heart; musculature; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human ATP1A2 (ATPase Na+/K+ transporting subunit alpha 2).
