Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
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 the actin cytoskeleton; brush border; and stereocilium tip. Predicted to colocalize with the filamentous actin. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 36. Is expressed in seminiferous tubule and seminiferous tubule epithelium. Orthologous to human ESPN (espin).
