Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have SH3 domain binding activity and actin filament binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of cytoskeleton organization; parallel actin filament bundle assembly; and positive regulation of filopodium assembly. Localizes to actin cytoskeleton; brush border; and stereocilium tip. Is expressed in organ of Corti; seminiferous tubule; and seminiferous tubule epithelium. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 36. Orthologous to human ESPN (espin).
