Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits protein domain specific binding activity. Involved in several processes, including glomerulus morphogenesis; positive regulation of cellular protein metabolic process; and salivary gland development. Localizes to several cellular components, including the bicellular tight junction; cell-cell adherens junction; and lamellipodium. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in blepharocheilodontic syndrome 2. Orthologous to human CTNND1 (catenin delta 1).
