Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have scaffold protein binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cell differentiation involved in embryonic placenta development; cell surface receptor signaling pathway; and hepatocyte apoptotic process. Localizes to several cellular components, including the apicolateral plasma membrane; intracellular non-membrane-bounded organelle; and sarcolemma. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in liver cirrhosis. Orthologous to human KRT8 (keratin 8).
