Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits calcium ion binding activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic cytosolic calcium ion concentration and calcium ion binding activity involved in regulation of presynaptic cytosolic calcium ion concentration. Involved in several processes, including metanephros development; regulation of long-term synaptic potentiation; and retina layer formation. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cytosol; hippocampal mossy fiber to CA3 synapse; and neuron projection. Orthologous to human CALB1 (calbindin 1).
