Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.2)
Predicted to enable actin filament binding activity. Acts upstream of or within cardiac myofibril assembly; negative regulation of actin filament polymerization; and sarcomere organization. Predicted to be located in striated muscle thin filament. Predicted to be active in cytoplasm and cytoskeleton. Is expressed in several structures, including axial skeleton; central nervous system; gut; heart; and metanephros. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in familial hypertrophic cardiomyopathy. Orthologous to human FHOD3 (formin homology 2 domain containing 3).
