Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Predicted to enable molecular adaptor activity. Predicted to be involved in clathrin-dependent synaptic vesicle endocytosis and positive regulation of dendrite extension. Predicted to act upstream of or within cell differentiation. Predicted to be located in centrosome. Predicted to be active in several cellular components, including clathrin-coated pit; intracellular vesicle; and presynaptic membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including endocrine gland; ileum; male reproductive gland or organ; nervous system; and thymus. Used to study nephrotic syndrome. Orthologous to human ITSN2 (intersectin 2).
