Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have gap junction hemi-channel activity and identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in gap junction-mediated intercellular transport; response to hydrogen peroxide; and response to pH. Localizes to the gap junction and plasma membrane. Used to study cataract 14 multiple types. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cataract 14 multiple types. Is expressed in lens; metanephros; and testis. Orthologous to human GJA3 (gap junction protein alpha 3).
