Predicted to have Rab GTPase binding activity; cadherin binding activity; and tubulin binding activity. Involved in mast cell activation; negative regulation of cell population proliferation; and peripheral nervous system myelin maintenance. Localizes to cytoplasm. Used to study Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4D. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Charcot-Marie-Tooth disease type 4D. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; extraembryonic component; genitourinary system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human NDRG1 (N-myc downstream regulated 1).
