Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Enables alpha-tubulin binding activity and microtubule binding activity. Involved in vesicle fusion. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including myeloid cell activation involved in immune response; negative regulation of macromolecule metabolic process; and plasma membrane organization. Located in several cellular components, including T-tubule; lamellipodium; and microtubule. Is expressed in heart ventricle. Used to study autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2B and distal myopathy. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Miyoshi muscular dystrophy 1; autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2B; distal muscular dystrophy with anterior tibial onset; and muscular dystrophy. Orthologous to human DYSF (dysferlin).
