Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits G-protein beta/gamma-subunit complex binding activity and GTPase activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to electrical stimulus; detection of light stimulus; and eye development. Localizes to photoreceptor connecting cilium; photoreceptor inner segment; and photoreceptor outer segment. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital stationary night blindness 1G; congenital stationary night blindness autosomal dominant 3; and night blindness. Is expressed in brain; photoreceptor layer outer segment; retina; and retina outer nuclear layer. Orthologous to human GNAT1 (G protein subunit alpha transducin 1).
