Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including anion binding activity; dynein light chain binding activity; and metal ion binding activity. Involved in several processes, including regulation of endothelial cell migration; regulation of sprouting angiogenesis; and response to glucose. Localizes to the cell body; cytoplasm; and glial cell projection. Used to study temporal lobe epilepsy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease; Huntington's disease; and temporal lobe epilepsy. Orthologous to human GLUL (glutamate-ammonia ligase).
