Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits adenylate cyclase activity. Involved in several processes, including long-term memory; modulation of chemical synaptic transmission; and positive regulation of CREB transcription factor activity. Localizes to several cellular components, including Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; hippocampal mossy fiber to CA3 synapse; and integral component of postsynaptic density membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; nervous system; renal cortex; 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).
