Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have actin filament binding activity. Involved in eye photoreceptor cell development. Localizes to actin cytoskeleton and stereocilium. Is expressed in retina. Used to study auditory system disease; retinal degeneration; and retinitis pigmentosa 30. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in retinitis pigmentosa and retinitis pigmentosa 30. Orthologous to human FSCN2 (fascin actin-bundling protein 2, retinal).
