Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Enables transmitter-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Predicted to be involved in chemical synaptic transmission and positive regulation of glutamatergic synaptic transmission. Located in synapse. Part of AMPA glutamate receptor complex. Is active in glutamatergic synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including adrenal gland; alimentary system; eye; genitourinary system; and nervous system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in schizophrenia. Orthologous to human GRIA4 (glutamate ionotropic receptor AMPA type subunit 4).
