Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits actin filament binding activity. Involved in several processes, including auditory receptor cell stereocilium organization; positive regulation of substrate adhesion-dependent cell spreading; and sensory perception of sound. Localizes to cuticular plate; stereocilium base; and stereocilium shaft. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 28. Orthologous to human TRIOBP (TRIO and F-actin binding protein).
