Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA binding activity and signaling receptor activator activity. Involved in several processes, including cellular metal ion homeostasis; extracellular matrix organization; and nervous system development. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cytoplasm; cytoskeleton; and presynaptic active zone. Used to study Alzheimer's disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in APP-related cerebral amyloid angiopathy; Alzheimer's disease; Alzheimer's disease 1; cognitive disorder; and visual epilepsy. Orthologous to human APP (amyloid beta precursor protein).
