Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
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 axon; glutamatergic synapse; and integral component of postsynaptic density membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; integumental system; nervous system; and sensory organ. Used to study autism spectrum disorder. Orthologous to human NRCAM (neuronal cell adhesion molecule).
