Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits calcium-dependent cysteine-type endopeptidase activity; metal ion binding activity; and molecular adaptor activity. Involved in several processes, including G1 to G0 transition involved in cell differentiation; protein-containing complex assembly; and regulation of transcription, DNA-templated. Localizes to the cytosol; plasma membrane; and protein-containing complex. Used to study autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2A. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2A and muscular dystrophy. Orthologous to human CAPN3 (calpain 3).
