Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits transmitter-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Predicted to be involved in regulation of receptor recycling. Localizes to AMPA glutamate receptor complex; parallel fiber to Purkinje cell synapse; and postsynaptic membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; brain; ciliary body; genitourinary system; and thymus. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in syndromic X-linked intellectual disability 94. Orthologous to human GRIA3 (glutamate ionotropic receptor AMPA type subunit 3).
