Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
A structural constituent of postsynaptic actin cytoskeleton and structural constituent of postsynaptic intermediate filament cytoskeleton. Involved in cellular response to leukemia inhibitory factor and neurofilament cytoskeleton organization. Localizes to the Schaffer collateral - CA1 synapse; neurofilament; and postsynapse. Is expressed in several structures, including gut; nervous system; neural ectoderm; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human INA (internexin neuronal intermediate filament protein alpha).
