Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1)
Exhibits dystroglycan binding activity. Involved in glycoprotein biosynthetic process and protein processing. Localizes to Golgi apparatus; extracellular space; and sarcolemma. Is expressed in brain. Used to study autosomal recessive limb-girdle muscular dystrophy type 2I; muscular dystrophy; muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy; and muscular dystrophy-dystroglycanopathy type B5. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in dilated cardiomyopathy and muscular dystrophy (multiple). Orthologous to human FKRP (fukutin related protein).
