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