Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.4.0)
Enables transmitter-gated monoatomic ion channel activity involved in regulation of postsynaptic membrane potential. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including GABAergic synaptic transmission; chloride transmembrane transport; and gamma-aminobutyric acid signaling pathway. Is active in cerebellar Golgi cell to granule cell synapse. Is expressed in central nervous system and retina. Orthologous to human GABRA6 (gamma-aminobutyric acid type A receptor subunit alpha6).
