Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Predicted to have microtubule binding activity. Predicted to be involved in negative regulation of macroautophagy; regulation of dendrite morphogenesis; and regulation of synaptic plasticity. Predicted to localize to several cellular components, including apical plasma membrane; dendrite; and postsynaptic density. Is expressed in several structures, including brain and metanephros. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in esophageal cancer and squamous cell carcinoma. Orthologous to human LZTS1 (leucine zipper tumor suppressor 1).
