Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits actin binding activity and synaptic receptor adaptor activity. Involved in several processes, including behavioral response to cocaine; calcium-mediated signaling using intracellular calcium source; and chemical homeostasis within a tissue. Localizes to several cellular components, including glutamatergic synapse; postsynaptic density; and stereocilium tip. Is expressed in several structures, including central nervous system; genitourinary system; lung; nose; and spleen. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant nonsyndromic deafness 68. Orthologous to human HOMER2 (homer scaffold protein 2).
