Exhibits actin filament binding activity. Involved in several processes, including negative regulation of timing of anagen; regulation of protein transport; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to the focal adhesion. Used to study Kindler syndrome. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Kindler syndrome; telangiectasis; and vesiculobullous skin disease. Orthologous to human FERMT1 (fermitin family member 1).
