Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits several functions, including beta-tubulin binding activity; protein tyrosine kinase binding activity; and scaffold protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including animal organ development; regulation of gene expression; and regulation of membrane depolarization. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cytoplasm; fascia adherens; and lateral plasma membrane. Used to study oculodentodigital dysplasia. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in congenital heart disease (multiple); erythrokeratodermia variabilis (multiple); oculodentodigital dysplasia; and palmoplantar keratosis. Orthologous to human GJA1 (gap junction protein alpha 1).
