Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to contribute to calcium-dependent ATPase activity and tropomyosin binding activity. Involved in transition between fast and slow fiber. Predicted to localize to troponin complex. Used to study nemaline myopathy 5. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in nemaline myopathy 5. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; crus of diaphragm; heart; and skeletal musculature. Orthologous to human TNNT1 (troponin T1, slow skeletal type).
