Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have several functions, including 1-phosphatidylinositol binding activity; cytoskeletal protein binding activity; and protein C-terminus binding activity. Involved in positive regulation of protein binding activity; regulation of calcium ion transport; and regulation of intestinal absorption. Localizes to the basolateral plasma membrane and cortical cytoskeleton. Used to study hereditary elliptocytosis. Orthologous to human EPB41 (erythrocyte membrane protein band 4.1).
