Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have actin binding activity; calcium ion binding activity; and myosin II binding activity. Involved in several processes, including actin filament capping; cellular response to interferon-gamma; and positive regulation of protein processing in phagocytic vesicle. Localizes to the lamellipodium and phagocytic vesicle. Colocalizes with the focal adhesion. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Finnish type amyloidosis. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; central nervous system; genitourinary system; heart; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human GSN (gelsolin).
