Exhibits enzyme regulator activity and molecular adaptor activity. Involved in several processes, including cilium assembly; regulation of L-glutamate import across plasma membrane; and smoothened signaling pathway. Localizes to several cellular components, including ciliary membrane; ciliary transition zone; and septin complex. Is expressed in several structures, including 1st branchial arch; brain; embryo mesenchyme; and limb. Orthologous to human SEPTIN2 (septin 2).
