Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have several functions, including beta-tubulin binding activity; phospholipid binding activity; and protein homodimerization activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to hepatocyte growth factor stimulus; regulation of defense response; and regulation of vesicle-mediated transport. Localizes to cytoplasmic vesicle and ruffle. Is expressed in several structures, including liver; muscle tissue; spleen; stomach; and testis. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in maturity-onset diabetes of the young type 14. Orthologous to human APPL1 (adaptor protein, phosphotyrosine interacting with PH domain and leucine zipper 1).
