Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have protein N-terminus binding activity. Involved in several processes, including adult walking behavior; auditory receptor cell stereocilium organization; and detection of mechanical stimulus involved in sensory perception. Localizes to the cytoplasm; neuron projection; and plasma membrane. Used to study Usher syndrome type 1F and autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 23. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Usher syndrome type 1D; Usher syndrome type 1F; and autosomal recessive nonsyndromic deafness 23. Orthologous to human PCDH15 (protocadherin related 15).
