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 and extracellular ligand-gated ion channel activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including chemical synaptic transmission; nervous system process; and regulation of membrane potential. Localizes to the GABA-ergic synapse and integral component of postsynaptic membrane. Used to study postpartum depression. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in idiopathic generalized epilepsy 10. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; metanephros; respiratory system; sensory organ; and ventricular layer. Orthologous to human GABRD (gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor delta subunit).
