Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits translation regulator activity. Predicted to contribute to Rac GTPase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including plasma membrane bounded cell projection organization; positive regulation of neurotrophin TRK receptor signaling pathway; and regulation of modification of postsynaptic actin cytoskeleton. Localizes to several cellular components, including lamellipodium; mRNA cap binding activity complex; and perinuclear region of cytoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including embryo mesenchyme; lung; nervous system; skeletal muscle; and tooth. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autism spectrum disorder and schizophrenia. Orthologous to human CYFIP1 (cytoplasmic FMR1 interacting protein 1).
