Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Enables actin filament binding activity. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including auditory receptor cell stereocilium organization; positive regulation of substrate adhesion-dependent cell spreading; and sensory perception of sound. Located in 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).
