Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable beta-catenin binding activity and cytoskeletal protein binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of dendritic spine development; positive regulation of synapse assembly; and regulation of signal transduction. Acts upstream of or within several processes, including apical protein localization; epithelial cell differentiation; and protein localization to adherens junction. Located in adherens junction; ciliary basal body; and postsynaptic density. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; hemolymphoid system gland; lung; and nervous system. Orthologous to human DLG5 (discs large MAGUK scaffold protein 5).
