Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
A structural constituent of cytoskeleton. Predicted to contribute to calcium-dependent ATPase activity and tropomyosin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cardiac muscle tissue morphogenesis; response to bacterium; and sarcomere organization. Localizes to the troponin complex. Used to study dilated cardiomyopathy 1D and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 2. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in intrinsic cardiomyopathy (multiple). Orthologous to human TNNT2 (troponin T2, cardiac type).
