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; protein localization to juxtaparanode region of axon; and protein localization to paranode region of axon. Localizes to several cellular components, including main axon; paranodal junction; and septate junction. Is expressed in nervous system and neural retina. Orthologous to human NFASC (neurofascin).
