Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 6.0.0)
Enables diazepam binding activity. Involved in several processes, including postsynapse to nucleus signaling pathway; regulation of neuron apoptotic process; and regulation of protein localization to nucleus. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including carboxylic acid metabolic process; positive regulation of cilium assembly; and transport along microtubule. Located in several cellular components, including centriole; inclusion body; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is active in glutamatergic synapse. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; olfactory epithelium; peripheral nervous system; retina; and testis. Used to study Huntington's disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Huntington's disease and Parkinson's disease. Orthologous to human HTT (huntingtin).
