Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
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 the apical junction complex; apical part of cell; and cell-cell adherens junction. Predicted to colocalize with the excitatory synapse. Orthologous to human AFDN (afadin, adherens junction formation factor).
