Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have identical protein binding activity; netrin receptor activity; and transcription coactivator activity. Involved in axonogenesis; neuron migration; and postsynaptic modulation of chemical synaptic transmission. Localizes to the Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; axon; and integral component of postsynaptic density membrane. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital mirror movement disorder; esophageal cancer; and esophagus squamous cell carcinoma. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; lung; and retina. Orthologous to human DCC (DCC netrin 1 receptor).
