Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to contribute to GABA-A receptor activity; benzodiazepine receptor activity; and extracellular ligand-gated ion channel activity. Involved in central nervous system development and regulation of response to drug. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the GABA-A receptor complex; dendrite membrane; and integral component of postsynaptic specialization membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autistic disorder. Orthologous to human GABRA4 (gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor alpha4 subunit).
