Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have several functions, including G-protein gamma-subunit binding activity; alkylglycerophosphoethanolamine phosphodiesterase activity; and spectrin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including phospholipase C-activating G protein-coupled receptor signaling pathway; retina development in camera-type eye; and sensory perception of taste. Localizes to heterotrimeric G-protein complex and photoreceptor outer segment. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; eye; genitourinary system; and hemolymphoid system gland. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in acute lymphoblastic leukemia and autosomal dominant non-syndromic intellectual disability 42. Orthologous to human GNB1 (G protein subunit beta 1).
