Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits PDZ domain binding activity and scaffold protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cerebellar granule cell differentiation; chemical synaptic transmission; and regulation of nervous system development. Localizes to several cellular components, including glutamatergic synapse; integral component of plasma membrane; and parallel fiber to Purkinje cell synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; eye; genitourinary system; intestine; and spinal cord. Used to study autosomal recessive spinocerebellar ataxia 18. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive spinocerebellar ataxia 18. Orthologous to human GRID2 (glutamate ionotropic receptor delta type subunit 2).
