Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have actin filament binding activity and filamin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including Notch signaling pathway; negative regulation of cell population proliferation; and striated muscle cell development. Localizes to the fascia adherens. Predicted to colocalize with the focal adhesion and stress fiber. Used to study hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Is expressed in several structures, including heart; musculature; and tail somite. Orthologous to human XIRP1 (xin actin binding repeat containing 1).
