Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits G protein-coupled serotonin receptor activity. Involved in several processes, including behavioral fear response; regulation of dopamine metabolic process; and serotonin metabolic process. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the GABA-ergic synapse; axon hillock; and integral component of presynaptic membrane. Used to study anxiety disorder. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in anxiety disorder; mental depression; and panic disorder. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; exocrine gland; eye; genitourinary system; and intestine. Orthologous to human HTR1A (5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 1A).
