Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.1.1)
Predicted to have ankyrin binding activity and identical protein binding activity. Involved in muscle fiber development. Predicted to localize to cytosol; sarcolemma; and sarcoplasm. Is expressed in several structures, including diaphragm; embryo mesenchyme; heart; skeletal musculature; and spinal cord ventricular layer. Used to study myofibrillar myopathy 5. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in distal muscular dystrophy 4; hypertrophic cardiomyopathy 26; and myofibrillar myopathy 5. Orthologous to human FLNC (filamin C).
