Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits extracellularly glycine-gated chloride channel activity. Predicted to contribute to chloride channel activity; extracellular ligand-gated ion channel activity; and glycine binding activity. Involved in chloride transmembrane transport and response to amino acid. Localizes to the glycinergic synapse and integral component of postsynaptic specialization membrane. Orthologous to human GLRA4 (glycine receptor alpha 4).
