Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have kainate selective glutamate receptor activity and transmitter-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Predicted to be involved in glutamatergic synaptic transmission and modulation of chemical synaptic transmission. Localizes to hippocampal mossy fiber to CA3 synapse and integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in brain; hippocampus; hippocampus CA3; telencephalon; and thalamus. Orthologous to human GRIK4 (glutamate ionotropic receptor kainate type subunit 4).
