Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have actin filament binding activity and cell-cell adhesion mediator activity. Involved in response to bacterium. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including the Z disc; cell-substrate adherens junction; and plasma membrane. Used to study hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 20. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in dilated cardiomyopathy 1CC and hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 20. Orthologous to human NEXN (nexilin F-actin binding protein).
