Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources
Predicted to have protein heterodimerization activity; signaling receptor binding activity; and toxic substance binding activity. Involved in several processes, including axo-dendritic transport; intermediate filament cytoskeleton organization; and regulation of axon diameter. Localizes to several cellular components, including the cytoskeleton; neuromuscular junction; and postsynaptic density. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease. Orthologous to human NEFM (neurofilament medium).
