Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.2)
Exhibits several functions, including insulin receptor binding activity; protein kinase binding activity; and signaling receptor complex adaptor activity. Involved in several processes, including focal adhesion assembly; positive regulation of biosynthetic process; and regulation of protein localization to membrane. Localizes to several cellular components, including adherens junction; nuclear matrix; and stress fiber. Predicted to colocalize with flotillin complex. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; respiratory system; sensory organ; and skeleton. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in obesity and type 2 diabetes mellitus. Orthologous to human SORBS1 (sorbin and SH3 domain containing 1).
