Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including brain-derived neurotrophic factor binding activity; identical protein binding activity; and ion channel binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cytoskeleton-dependent intracellular transport; nervous system development; and neurotrophin TRK receptor signaling pathway. Localizes to the cytoplasm and microtubule organizing center. Used to study endogenous depression. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Huntington's disease. Orthologous to human HAP1 (huntingtin associated protein 1).
