Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Predicted to have protein homodimerization activity and voltage-gated chloride channel activity. Involved in chloride transport and neuronal action potential propagation. Localizes to sarcolemma. Is expressed in central nervous system; early conceptus; heart; oocyte; and retina. Used to study myotonia congenita. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in myotonia congenita. Orthologous to human CLCN1 (chloride voltage-gated channel 1).
