Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.0)
Predicted to enable several functions, including ATP hydrolysis activity; actin filament binding activity; and calmodulin binding activity. Involved in glomerular basement membrane development; glomerular filtration; and podocyte development. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including platelet-derived growth factor receptor signaling pathway; post-embryonic hemopoiesis; and vasculogenesis. Located in adherens junction; brush border; and cytoplasm. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in focal segmental glomerulosclerosis 6. Orthologous to human MYO1E (myosin IE).
