Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including Rab GTPase binding activity; calmodulin binding activity; and disordered domain specific binding activity. Involved in several processes, including establishment of endoplasmic reticulum localization to postsynapse; melanosome transport; and secretion by cell. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cytoplasmic vesicle; cytoskeleton; and photoreceptor outer segment. Colocalizes with the microtubule plus-end. Used to study Griscelli syndrome type 1. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Griscelli syndrome type 1. Is expressed in central nervous system; peripheral nervous system ganglion; and retina. Orthologous to human MYO5A (myosin VA).
