Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits protein binding activity involved in heterotypic cell-cell adhesion. Involved in several processes, including nervous system development; neuronal action potential propagation; and regulation of postsynapse organization. Localizes to the axon; glutamatergic synapse; and integral component of postsynaptic density membrane. Used to study autism spectrum disorder. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human NRCAM (neuronal cell adhesion molecule).
