Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
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 adherens junction and fascia adherens. Predicted to colocalize with focal adhesion and stress fiber. Is expressed in several structures, including heart; musculature; and tail somite. Used to study hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Orthologous to human XIRP1 (xin actin binding repeat containing 1).
