Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have actin filament binding activity and profilin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cell communication by chemical coupling; positive regulation of dendritic spine morphogenesis; and positive regulation of receptor localization to synapse. Localizes to several cellular components, including gap junction; glutamatergic synapse; and postsynaptic cytosol. Colocalizes with cell-cell junction. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; genitourinary system; integumental system; limb; and nervous system. Orthologous to human DBN1 (drebrin 1).
