Involved in several processes, including camera-type eye morphogenesis; epithelial cell morphogenesis; and establishment or maintenance of epithelial cell apical/basal polarity. Localizes to several cellular components, including the apical plasma membrane; filopodium; and lamellipodium. Used to study facioscapulohumeral muscular dystrophy and nephrotic syndrome. Orthologous to human FAT1 (FAT atypical cadherin 1).
