Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Exhibits actin binding activity. Involved in several processes, including fibroblast migration; nuclear migration; and regulation of cilium assembly. Localizes to nuclear outer membrane. Colocalizes with Z disc. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in autosomal dominant Emery-Dreifuss muscular dystrophy 5. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; genitourinary system; integumental system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human SYNE2 (spectrin repeat containing nuclear envelope protein 2).
