Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.1.1)
Enables enzyme regulator activity and molecular adaptor activity. Involved in cilium assembly and smoothened signaling pathway. Acts upstream of or within regulation of L-glutamate import across plasma membrane and regulation of protein localization. Located in several cellular components, including cell surface; ciliary membrane; and ciliary transition zone. Part of septin complex. Is expressed in several structures, including 1st branchial arch; brain; embryo mesenchyme; and limb. Orthologous to human SEPTIN2 (septin 2).
