Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits protein C-terminus binding activity and protein kinase binding activity. Contributes to sodium:potassium-exchanging ATPase activity. Involved in several processes, including positive regulation of calcium:sodium antiporter activity; protein stabilization; and regulation of cardiac muscle contraction by calcium ion signaling. Localizes to several cellular components, including the basolateral plasma membrane; intercalated disc; and sodium:potassium-exchanging ATPase complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in essential hypertension. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; genitourinary system; gut; heart and pericardium; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human ATP1B1 (ATPase Na+/K+ transporting subunit beta 1).
