Predicted to have several functions, including Rab GTPase binding activity; actin filament binding activity; and ionotropic glutamate receptor binding activity. Involved in modulation of chemical synaptic transmission. Localizes to the Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse and brush border. Predicted to colocalize with the recycling endosome. Used to study microvillus inclusion disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in microvillus inclusion disease. Is expressed in central nervous system; genitourinary system; and gut. Orthologous to human MYO5B (myosin VB).
