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