Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including SH3/SH2 adaptor activity; insulin receptor binding activity; and transcription factor binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular response to hormone stimulus; positive regulation of biosynthetic process; and regulation of protein localization to membrane. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cytosol; nuclear matrix; and stress fiber. Predicted to colocalize with the flotillin complex. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human SORBS1 (sorbin and SH3 domain containing 1).
