Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits identical protein binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including chemical synaptic transmission; positive regulation of ion transmembrane transporter activity; and regulation of membrane potential. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including cleavage furrow; integral component of synaptic membrane; and serotonin-activated cation-selective channel complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in irritable bowel syndrome. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; eye; gallbladder; genitourinary system; and gut. Orthologous to human HTR3A (5-hydroxytryptamine receptor 3A).
