Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have calmodulin binding activity; sodium ion binding activity; and voltage-gated sodium channel activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cellular response to antibiotic; neuronal action potential; and response to pyrethroid. Localizes to cytoplasm and membrane. Is expressed in cerebral cortex; heart; sciatic nerve; sympathetic ganglion; and telencephalon. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in early infantile epileptic encephalopathy 62 and focal epilepsy. Orthologous to human SCN3A (sodium voltage-gated channel alpha subunit 3).
