Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
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 basolateral plasma membrane and cortical cytoskeleton. Is expressed in central nervous system and retina. Used to study hereditary elliptocytosis. Orthologous to human EPB41 (erythrocyte membrane protein band 4.1).
