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; chloride transmembrane transport; and gamma-aminobutyric acid signaling pathway. Localizes to the GABA-ergic synapse and integral component of synaptic membrane. Is expressed in brain and lens. Orthologous to human GABRG3 (gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor gamma3 subunit).
