Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Exhibits microtubule binding activity and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including establishment or maintenance of epithelial cell apical/basal polarity; positive regulation of microtubule motor activity; and positive regulation of protein targeting to membrane. Localizes to several cellular components, including apicolateral plasma membrane; cytoskeleton; and lateral plasma membrane. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; cranial ganglion; limb segment; metanephros; and neural ectoderm. Orthologous to human MTCL1 (microtubule crosslinking factor 1).
