Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 6.0.0)
Enables osmolarity-sensing monoatomic cation channel activity. Predicted to be involved in glomerular filtration and monoatomic cation transport. Predicted to act upstream of or within monoatomic ion transport. Located in plasma membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in hereditary spastic paraplegia 87. Orthologous to human TMEM63C (transmembrane protein 63C).
