Predicted to have cadherin binding activity and lamin binding activity. Predicted to be involved in several processes, including cell-cell junction assembly; intermediate filament bundle assembly; and negative regulation of mRNA catabolic process. Localizes to the desmosome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in ectodermal dysplasia. Orthologous to human PKP1 (plakophilin 1).
