Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits identical protein binding activity; large conductance calcium-activated potassium channel activity; and voltage-gated potassium channel activity. Involved in several processes, including adult walking behavior; eye blink reflex; and locomotor rhythm. Localizes to several cellular components, including the apical plasma membrane; external side of plasma membrane; and voltage-gated potassium channel complex. Predicted to colocalize with the mitochondrion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease and idiopathic generalized epilepsy. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system gland; and liver and biliary system. Orthologous to human KCNMA1 (potassium calcium-activated channel subfamily M alpha 1).
