Description
Exhibits gap junction hemi-channel activity. Predicted to be involved in cell-cell signaling. Predicted to localize to connexin complex and integral component of plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including eye; kidney; liver; solid lens vesicle; and spinal cord. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in cataract and cataract 1 multiple types. Orthologous to human GJA8 (gap junction protein alpha 8).
