Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have axon guidance receptor activity and cytoskeletal protein binding activity. Involved in actin cytoskeleton organization; epithelial cell morphogenesis; and keratinocyte development. Localizes to Z disc; focal adhesion; and stress fiber. Is expressed in several structures, including embryo mesenchyme; genitourinary system; gut; heart; and hemolymphoid system gland. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in pancreatic cancer. Orthologous to human PALLD (palladin, cytoskeletal associated protein).
