Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have calcium ion binding activity; calcium-induced calcium release activity; and ryanodine-sensitive calcium-release channel activity. Involved in cellular calcium ion homeostasis and striated muscle contraction. Localizes to junctional membrane complex and sarcoplasmic reticulum membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; diaphragm; hemolymphoid system; liver; and musculature. Orthologous to human RYR3 (ryanodine receptor 3).
