Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits NMDA glutamate receptor activity and transmitter-gated ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Involved in several processes, including excitatory postsynaptic potential; neuromuscular process controlling balance; and protein localization to postsynaptic membrane. Localizes to NMDA selective glutamate receptor complex and glutamatergic synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; colon; eye; gallbladder; and genitourinary system. Orthologous to human GRIN2C (glutamate ionotropic receptor NMDA type subunit 2C).
