Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits high voltage-gated calcium channel activity. Involved in several processes, including calcium ion transmembrane transport; neurotransmitter secretion; and response to pain. Localizes to the dendrite; neuronal cell body; and voltage-gated calcium channel complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome and dystonia 23. Orthologous to human CACNA1B (calcium voltage-gated channel subunit alpha1 B).
