Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to contribute to actin binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including positive regulation of calcium-dependent ATPase activity; sarcomere organization; and skeletal muscle contraction. Predicted to localize to troponin complex. Is expressed in several structures, including diaphragm; eyelid epithelium; lower jaw; musculature; and urinary system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in distal arthrogryposis type 2B and distal arthrogryposis type 2B2. Orthologous to human TNNT3 (troponin T3, fast skeletal type).
