Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits mRNA binding activity. Involved in dendrite morphogenesis; learning; and locomotory behavior. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including glutamatergic synapse; growth cone; and polysomal ribosome. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; enteric nervous system; intestine; sensory organ; and urogenital sinus. Orthologous to human ELAVL4 (ELAV like RNA binding protein 4).
