Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have molecular function regulator; protein kinase activity; and vasopressin receptor binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular cation homeostasis; mating; and negative regulation of apoptotic process. Predicted to localize to dendrite; extracellular space; and secretory granule. Used to study neurohypophyseal diabetes insipidus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in diabetes insipidus and neurohypophyseal diabetes insipidus. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; cardiovascular system; integumental system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human AVP (arginine vasopressin).
