Exhibits neurotransmitter receptor activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Involved in regulation of locomotion. Localizes to Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; cholinergic synapse; and integral component of postsynaptic membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Lambert-Eaton myasthenic syndrome; asthma; and myasthenia gravis. Is expressed in central nervous system; retina; and urinary system.
