Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits transmitter-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Predicted to contribute to GABA-A receptor activity; benzodiazepine receptor activity; and ion channel activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including GABAergic synaptic transmission; gamma-aminobutyric acid signaling pathway; and protein heterooligomerization. Localizes to the cerebellar Golgi cell to granule cell synapse. Is expressed in central nervous system and retina. Orthologous to human GABRA6 (gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor alpha6 subunit).
