Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.1.0)
Predicted to enable calcium ion binding activity; calcium-induced calcium release activity; and ryanodine-sensitive calcium-release channel activity. Acts upstream of or within cellular calcium ion homeostasis and striated muscle contraction. Located in sarcoplasmic reticulum membrane. Part of junctional membrane complex. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; diaphragm; hemolymphoid system; liver; and musculature. Orthologous to human RYR3 (ryanodine receptor 3).
