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