Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits cell adhesion molecule binding activity. Involved in several processes, including adherens junction maintenance; cell-cell adhesion mediated by cadherin; and nervous system development. Localizes to several cellular components, including adherens junction; apical junction complex; and pore complex. Predicted to colocalize with excitatory synapse. Is expressed in eye; genitourinary system; and nervous system. Orthologous to human AFDN (afadin, adherens junction formation factor).
