Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 4.0)
Predicted to enable several functions, including 1-phosphatidylinositol binding activity; cytoskeletal protein binding activity; and protein C-terminus binding activity. Involved in regulation of calcium ion transport and regulation of intestinal absorption. Acts upstream of or within positive regulation of protein binding activity. Located in basolateral plasma membrane and cortical cytoskeleton. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; brain; connective tissue; eye; and genitourinary system. Used to study hereditary elliptocytosis. Orthologous to human EPB41 (erythrocyte membrane protein band 4.1).
