Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including D2 dopamine receptor binding activity; enzyme binding activity; and protein domain specific binding activity. Involved in circulatory system development and synaptic vesicle endocytosis. Localizes to the photoreceptor inner segment. Predicted to colocalize with the growth cone. Used to study centronuclear myopathy and cystic kidney disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease dominant intermediate B; centronuclear myopathy 1; and lethal congenital contracture syndrome. Is expressed in central nervous system; retina; and skin. Orthologous to human DNM2 (dynamin 2).
