Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits several functions, including calmodulin binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and ryanodine-sensitive calcium-release channel activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to organonitrogen compound; heart morphogenesis; and regulation of heart contraction. Localizes to Z disc; calcium channel complex; and endoplasmic reticulum. Used to study arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia 2 and catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia 1. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in arrhythmogenic right ventricular cardiomyopathy; arrhythmogenic right ventricular dysplasia 2; and catecholaminergic polymorphic ventricular tachycardia 1. Is expressed in several structures, including brain; cardiovascular system; genitourinary system; gut; and respiratory system. Orthologous to human RYR2 (ryanodine receptor 2).
