Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have galanin receptor activity; galanin receptor binding activity; and neuropeptide hormone activity. Involved in nervous system development and neuropeptide signaling pathway. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including Golgi apparatus; neuronal cell body; 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).
