Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 3.0)
Predicted to have 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 intermediate filament cytoskeleton; neuromuscular junction; and postsynaptic density. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in Alzheimer's disease. Is expressed in several structures, including alimentary system; future brain; limb; nervous system; and sensory organ. Orthologous to human NEFM (neurofilament medium).
