Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits GKAP/Homer scaffold activity and ionotropic glutamate receptor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including dendritic spine morphogenesis; learning or memory; and regulation of signal transduction. Localizes to several cellular components, including the Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; dendritic spine; and postsynaptic density. Colocalizes with the ionotropic glutamate receptor complex and postsynaptic membrane. Orthologous to human SHANK1 (SH3 and multiple ankyrin repeat domains 1).
