Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits netrin receptor binding activity. Involved in axon guidance and netrin-activated signaling pathway. Localizes to several cellular components, including filopodium; growth cone; and lamellipodium. Used to study congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in complex cortical dysplasia with other brain malformations 1 and congenital fibrosis of the extraocular muscles. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; cardiovascular system; future brain; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human TUBB3 (tubulin beta 3 class III).
