Automated description from the Alliance of Genome Resources (Release 5.2.0)
Enables spectrin binding activity. Predicted to be involved in actin cytoskeleton reorganization. Predicted to act upstream of or within actin filament capping. Located in several cellular components, including cuticular plate; fascia adherens; and lateral plasma membrane. Is active in paranodal junction. Is expressed in gut; nervous system; and sensory organ. Human ortholog(s) of this gene implicated in developmental and epileptic encephalopathy 5. Orthologous to human SPTAN1 (spectrin alpha, non-erythrocytic 1).
