Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including cytoskeletal protein binding activity; disordered domain specific binding activity; and dynein complex binding activity. Involved in several processes, including establishment of mitotic spindle orientation; positive regulation of BMP signaling pathway; and positive regulation of epidermis development. Localizes to several cellular components, including the lateral cell cortex; mitotic spindle pole; and nuclear matrix. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in acute promyelocytic leukemia. Orthologous to human NUMA1 (nuclear mitotic apparatus protein 1).
