Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
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 apical plasma membrane; external side of plasma membrane; and voltage-gated potassium channel complex. Predicted to colocalize with mitochondrion. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system gland; and liver and biliary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease and idiopathic generalized epilepsy. Orthologous to human KCNMA1 (potassium calcium-activated channel subfamily M alpha 1).
