Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including calcium channel inhibitor activity; calcium-dependent protein binding activity; and cytoskeletal protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular calcium ion homeostasis; circulatory system development; and regulation of systemic arterial blood pressure by ischemic conditions. Localizes to the sarcomere. Used to study hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 7 and restrictive cardiomyopathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in intrinsic cardiomyopathy (multiple). Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; heart; integumental system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human TNNI3 (troponin I3, cardiac type).
