Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Exhibits DNA binding activity; microtubule binding activity; and protein kinase binding activity. Involved in several processes, including cytoskeleton-dependent intracellular transport; generation of neurons; and regulation of cellular response to stress. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cytoskeleton; cytosol; and postsynaptic density. Predicted to colocalize with the membrane. Used to study Alzheimer's disease. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in brain disease (multiple); dementia (multiple); and neurodegenerative disease (multiple). Orthologous to human MAPT (microtubule associated protein tau).
