Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have intermediate filament binding activity; phosphatase activity; and phosphatidylinositol binding activity. Involved in several processes, including mitochondrion morphogenesis; negative regulation of cellular catabolic process; and negative regulation of intracellular signal transduction. Localizes to the I band. Used to study centronuclear myopathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in centronuclear myopathy and congenital structural myopathy. Orthologous to human MTM1 (myotubularin 1).
