Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable amyloid-beta binding activity. Involved in maintenance of lens transparency and smooth muscle contraction. Acts upstream of or within extracellular matrix organization; generation of neurons; and regulation of apoptotic process. Located in cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; eye; genitourinary system; and hemolymphoid system gland. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease and cognitive disorder. Orthologous to human APBB2 (amyloid beta precursor protein binding family B member 2).
