Official Full Name
RIC3 acetylcholine receptor chaperone
The protein encoded by this gene promotes functional expression of homomeric nicotinic acetylcholine receptors at the cell surface. It enhances currents generated by these receptors by expediting receptor transport to the cell surface and by increasing receptor number. Alternatively spliced transcript variants encoding different isoforms have been found for this gene.
