Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Enables adenylate cyclase activity. Involved in several processes, including modulation of chemical synaptic transmission; neuroinflammatory response; and positive regulation of CREB transcription factor activity. Acts upstream of or within axonogenesis and long-term memory. Located in cytoplasm; glutamatergic synapse; and postsynaptic density. Is integral component of postsynaptic density membrane. Is active in Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse and hippocampal mossy fiber to CA3 synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; nervous system; respiratory system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 44. Orthologous to human ADCY1 (adenylate cyclase 1).
