Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.1.1)
Predicted to enable axon guidance receptor activity. Acts upstream of or within actin cytoskeleton organization; epithelial cell morphogenesis; and keratinocyte development. Located in Z disc; focal adhesion; and stress fiber. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; heart; and hemolymphoid system gland. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pancreatic cancer. Orthologous to human PALLD (palladin, cytoskeletal associated protein).
