Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have protein homodimerization activity and voltage-gated chloride channel activity. Involved in chloride transport and neuronal action potential propagation. Localizes to sarcolemma. Used to study myotonia congenita. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in myotonia congenita. Is expressed in central nervous system; heart; and retina. Orthologous to human CLCN1 (chloride voltage-gated channel 1).
