Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable galanin receptor activity; galanin receptor binding activity; and neuropeptide hormone activity. Acts upstream of or within nervous system development and neuropeptide signaling pathway. Predicted to be located in Golgi apparatus and neuronal cell body. Predicted to be active in extracellular space and secretory granule. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; embryo mesenchyme; heart; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial temporal lobe epilepsy 8. Orthologous to human GAL (galanin and GMAP prepropeptide).
