Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Predicted to have alpha-actinin binding activity and cell-cell adhesion mediator activity. Predicted to be involved in axon guidance; dendrite self-avoidance; and homophilic cell adhesion via plasma membrane adhesion molecules. Localizes to Z disc. Is expressed in several structures, including embryo mesenchyme; gut; lung; mesonephros; and nervous system. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in muscular dystrophy; myofibrillar myopathy 3; and spheroid body myopathy. Orthologous to human MYOT (myotilin).
